ThatsMyMouse shares your mouse position with other visitors on the same webpage –real time web based interaction
What Company Is Offering:
ThatsMyMouse shares your mouse position with other visitors on the same webpage to open up a new world of real-time web-based interaction. Each person’s mouse position on the page is represented by an avatar with their name written on it. As they move their mouse, you can see what they point to and what links they click on.
ThatsMyMouse also offers a range of API functions that gives website developers the power to build a whole new range real-time interaction based web applications.
How It Works:
Just start typing. If you’re not currently writing inside a form input, then you’ll see a dialogue box pop up that records what you type. Once you’re done, press enter and a bubble will pop out of your avatar for everyone to see. You can also click on the ‘Talk’ button in the control panel to display a more tradition chat interface.
People can only see your mouse marker if you can see theirs. If you see someone else’s mouse marker then they will be able to see you. If our control panel or icon is visible in the corner of the web page, then ThatsMyMouse is enabled and anyone who enters the web page will be able to see you. If you want to stop people from seeing you, simply click on the x button on the top right hand corner of the control panel. You will have options for the time period you want to close the application for. You can re-enabled ThatsMyMouse at any time by visiting http://thatsmymouse.com.
From the Setting button on the bottom left of the control panel, there are various options for playing sounds on different ThatsMyMouse events. By default the only sound that is enabled is when someone sends a message on a page you’re currently on. Sounds are not currently supported if you are using the Safari web browser.
