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. Shindig technology is all about making video chat comfortable by ridding it of its imprisoning structure and tailoring it to particular circumstances. 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.
