This drawing application “prettifies” drawn shapes. For example, if the user draws a rough rectangle the application is going to make it pretty/regularized (i.e. with four straight lines) and of the appropriate size. The user will be able to change the color of the stroke, the fill and also the width of the stroke before drawing.
Chat Like an Egyptian is a web experiment to investigate the possible adoption of Emoji-based communication instead of a script-based one. Emoji are ubiquitous in messaging and are used as a way of expressing emotion and concepts. We are inspired in this paper by the apparent similarity between emoji and Egyptian hieroglyphs as a sort of a return to a primitive, but perhaps a more effective form of writing. We developed a web application that lets the two users join a chatroom and communicate exclusively through emoji.
