15 Striking Scenes From Google's I/O Developer Conference

'Who Am I?' Webcam Game

MagneticNorth, a UK-based digital design company, showcased their "Who Am I?" project at Google I/O. Commissioned by Google, magneticNorth’s game is similar to the guess-what-famous-person-you-are party game, but it adds webcams. Each player takes turns asking yes-or-no questions in order to figure out which famous person their opponent chose for them.

Developed using WebRTC, "Who Am I?" supports webcam chats using JavaScript API and features JavaScript face tracking, as well as Google Custom Search and Google’s App Engine to allow for synchronized gameplay.
