The Reculture App – Cultural Comparison
One of the initial ideas for the app was going to be a tool to compare the gestures of each culture for each command. For instance, there would be a ‘page’ to show all of the different cultures’ gestures for the ‘power’ command. The initial idea was to include a ‘compare’ view in the app which would simultaneously play every cultures’ gesture for each command.
However, without post-processing of all the videos, this is not possible as the Windows Phone SDK does not allow for multiple MediaElement objects to be active at the same time. I came up with a slightly less impressive way of being able to compare gestures and that is to simply include a small amount of text on each gesture telling the user what other gestures are similar to the current gesture.
