Hi Social Hub
- Projector | Samsung | June 2010
“Social Hub is a service included in some of Samsungs new mobile phones. It collects all of your contacts and their social networks in one place and make it possible for you to reach them, anywhere and anytime. In the first phase of the campaign we introduced the name and concept Social hub. A sphere of contacts, always there to guide you. To explain the magic of having your friends close we’ve made a game. You ask the hub your life questions, and the hub, with all your friends, will guide you right on to the path of wisdom.”
The logic behind the answers is pretty simple with slightly controlled random answers. But sometimes you got that funny answer, and then you share it with the world…
For the graphical stuff: I used a lot of shared sources in this project. To mention some of them, the mosaic in the beginning is based on FlickrMosaic by @inspirit. The source-image is your current profile-photo on facebook. And the tiles is your friends profile-images. The transition that shows when you waiting for an answer is a old school tunnel-effect written by Petri Leskinen’s (pixelero). Great blog by the way. Particles and the galaxy-plane is Away3D. The spherical effect applied to the orb is a pixelbender filter that I found over at swingpant’s flash lab. Thanks for sharing guys!
