CocktailParty is a video communication application designed to uniquely and efficiently solve the problems faced by traditional online video communication. The proposal for this start-up project was accepted in August 2020. CocktailParty enables users to join a video chat room overlayed on top of a virtual house, in which each user can move their own video feed around the house. Each room in each house layout hosts a different video call, allowing users to easily host large virtual gatherings that facilitate multiple conversations taking place simultaneously. This functionality makes important steps towards effective simulation of the real-life gathering experience.
