At present we're 189% funded, over 1,200 backers, and have 9 days left of the campaign. You could say that things are going well.
As we edge ever closer to our $60k unlock we feel it's time to share something that we've been cooking up in the ZapBox HQ kitchen - something so good that it deserves to be experienced together. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the $70k stretch goal:
What makes this so cool?
If we hit this goal we'll add app support and backend servers to make it much easier for developers to build shared and collaborative experiences for ZapBox. Users will be able to invite others to join them in an experience, and the backend servers will provide facilities for experiences to share and synchronize data with all the participants.
It'll look a little something like this
We'll use ZapBrush as a test case for this functionality, you'll be able to paint with friends in a shared world; whether you’re in the same physical space or located on opposite sides of the planet! It's like Google Docs but for Mixed Reality painting.
There’s lots of detail for us to work out here, and this functionality is likely to be delivered in a software update after the main ZapBox launch, but, if we meet this stretch goal we’ll commit to making it a development priority once the core functionality is delivered.
Told you it was cool :-)
