Here’s one for anybody to take on…
Imagine a device like Amazon’s echo which ambiently shares what you are watching and also at what point…
It would operate similar to Trakt.TV’s live progress but rather than be constrained to an online web service, it would be a physical connected thing (IoT) which uses acoustic fingerprint technology similar to Shazam to automatically recognise what you are watching and where you currently are.
Whipclip reminded me of this, but I have been using Yatse with Kodi or the Chromecast to share the shows I’m currently watching. But I’d like to share the part of the video I’m watching really… This causes some issue with spoilers, but that could be worked out if you knew the episode and position of the person who is looking.
