This might look a little like DrawSomething, actually it looks exactly like DrawSomething, but that’s where the similarities end. Doodlr is an interaction experiment by the guys at LOVE Labs, who’ve been playing with ways to bring the Physical and Digital worlds together via smart phones.

Using Socket.IO and node.js to build the framework for real-time interaction between multiple users, Doodlr was born and setup as a projection based installation allowing people passing the window in Manchester to stop, connect and draw what ever the window challenged them to… Complete a drawing and you automatically make their Flickr album too.

I’m seeing a huge increase in Socket.IO usage and I can’t wait to post the next gen of real-time installations here… If you are working on a similar project, shoot me an email or post it below!
