Have you ever been on a video call and wanted to draw a box-and-line diagram, like you would at a whiteboard?
Been frustrated how clunky mouse gestures are, compared to a pen?
Wanted to share and re-use parts of your diagram, easily, in your next one?
- whiteboard apps didn’t put your diagrams in their database
- drawing a box, or connecting two boxes, could happen with a gesture, at the speed of thought
- labelled boxes and connectors formed a semantic graph that could be re-used
Sounds hard? We have the basic pieces already:
- SOLID lets you store interconnected data, like diagrams, where you choose
- m-ld lets you collaborate in real-time on a shared RDF data structure (for example in the demo)
- (What you may not know) m-ld was motivated by an app just like this, which is on my shelf, and it already does shape recognition!
What needs to be done, is to integrate these three pieces together, polish it up, and start thinking about the artificial intelligence possibilities…
What do you think?
