Shindig is a NYC startup committed to unleashing the unrealized potential of video chat by allowing free flowing engagement of all participants in group chat. Current video chat ignores the fact that staring at the person you are talking to is not natural, and the feeling that they are doing the same back at you is highly discomforting. With our technology, we are creating revolutionary new types of web experiences revolving around large scale online events, gaming, social networks, distance learning, and other meaningful online activities. A sneak peak at our first game is at ShindigChess.com but it doesn’t begin to tell the story.
