So … back in August we suggested you try out our new experimental office. Which we have called Hex (for obvious reasons). Now, the KMi virtual office has a voice enabled virtual coffee room.
You go to coffee by dragging your hex into the room. It drops where you place it in that space, and your mike is thrown open – so what you say can be heard by others in that “coffee” space. You can move it around, just as you can in the main hexagon “office” space. However, unlike the main space (which now shows a steaming mug), you cant move other people around – they are not hexes any more – but circles.
As you near them (or they near you) their mike volume increases. Ergo, if you want a quiet chat – you can agree to move off into a corner with your fellows.
Try it – and see if you can make it break.
