www.Vidicul.us is the winner of Startup Weekend Boston, summer 2010. We were automatically placed on the Mass Challenge competition, and got a number of other prizes.
Our amazing team, which was able to build the site in less than 24 hours of work, was composed of Graphic Designers, User Interface designers, Developers, Social Media and Marketing/Business people. Here are the team members: Alec Berryman, Ben Riseman, Catherine Duffy, Craig Krigsman, David Kressel, Jason Nochlin, Mike Altman, Pascal Rettig, Sidi Gomes and Yifei Zhang
The site is not yet finished, so dont expect full functionality; but when it is finished you will be able to: paste a video link (URL from Youtube), then see the video in our theater setting; then click on the small characters/hecklers in the bottom and insert funny comments as you are seeing the video. At then end you would get a URL that would have all of your comments on the video. You would then be able to send it to your friends to see not only the video, but your comments at the exact same time you put them in. They could then insert their own comments or make fun of your comments, and they would get a new url in the the end that would have both your comments and their comments; and they could send this new URL back to you, or other friends.
It is basically a video commentary mashup, where only the best comments would get passed around. And of course you would see only comments from people you cared about, or that had some unique feature that made your friend pass it along to you - Not the pile of garbage comments one usually finds on Youtube.
Here is a quick sketch I made for the "Day 2 night heels" team at Startup Weekend Boston, summer 2009.
From their website:
"Day2Night has come up with a revolutionary solution to the problem of comfort and functionality versus style: CONVERTIBLE HEELS. Our heels, wedges, and boots come with heel attachments of varying heights that can be easily attached to increase your height or detached and replaced with smaller heels for a more comfortable trek."
