Login page Destiny A browser based chat application Recognition of chatting activities in social interactions is useful for constructing human social networks. This Project aims at designing a browser based chat application using an immersive gaming model. This application uses the real world scenario of friend making to generate a virtual model and use it to make chatting more immersive and exciting experience. This chat application calculates your odds of meeting a person online based on the probability which is decided by the compatibility calculated between the two chatting parties. The compatibility is calculated in real time based on the understanding a user gains about his chatting partner as well as the interest shown by the users during the chatting. The Application is built using Flash Media server, Flash Actionscript , PHP and MySQL for database. We have used an iterative design process by testing the application several times in IIT campus. The interface is made adaptive using fluid Layouts. Home Page

Destination ‘x’ Designed a Mission game using Geographic metaphor (world map).The mission of the game is to reach a final destination while moving and roaming through different cities in world. The map is explored as the game proceeds. It started with making an algorithm to generate maps considering shortest path algorithm using different permutations of cities and then story boarding the game. The maps are disclosed to participants in steps during the game depending building a immersive behavior through surprise element. The game and its back ground question bank evolved as a result of endless group discussions, dry runs and continuous improvements. Finally the game interface was made in on flash using an interactive user centered design process.

GupShup – Tool for office fun This is not a tool for office work collaboration, this tool deals with the fun part. Moving away from a MS Outlook Model we thought of application (browser based as well as standalone) that deals with the fun part of a office environment. Inviting friends for coffee, pool, and foosball or dedicating, sharing videos and songs, or teasing you colleges using fun emotions. This application is built using Flash Actionscript and Flash media server. Designing part is based on an iterative user centered design process, and a detailed analysis of the office culture and environment was done in data gathering and analyses phase to model our application based on it.
