Metaballs and Communication


The idea is to use metaballs and a system of layers to represent audio, video and message level communication channels. The user would be able to fluidly move from conversation to conversation, even placing themselves in multiple places. No discrete channels need to be created ahead of time, allowing users to dynamically form groups on the fly.


The Project has taken longer than expected due to unforeseen difficulties in high performance calculation of discrete metaball layers. The difficulty is not in displaying them, but in knowing if the metaballs are connected within the layer. My current implementation uses marching squares and is too slow for my needs. I've taken a break from development while I strengthen my skill set and I hope to return to this project soon.
