Social Poetry - First Prototype

I spend a lot of my life on Facebook, it's great what they've done with social networking. But, I've always found quirks in the user experience. I've been lately imagining a world where I could easily run through my friends lists, see the status updates and photo galleries in a minority report inspired way. It really irks me that such beautiful beautiful user generated data is only really being exploited by stupid social games like Farmville.. Grr.
I hate Farmville.

So last weekend I set myself the challenge of seeing what I could do with the Facebook APIs, and the following video presents the outcome.



I'm pretty busy this weekend, but I plan on getting at the very least a photo gallery viewer for all my friends.

Currently I'm targeting Qt for the prototype as I'm initially tailoring it as a Desktop Windows/Mac prototype. However as the codebase is based off OpenGL, I have got it running on iPhone and Android.

If you're interested in this project, let me know and I'll be happy to give you an early release.
