Hyperboring is not your average website, this is something special and a web experience that stands on its own. The website is only in the Beta stage right now but I see big things happening in the future for Hyperboring and it’s creator Samim.
This website acts as a canvas for the imagination. The possibilities are limitless. First a user must either join a room or create one, after creating a free account of course. The next part is simple, invite your friends to the room and share anything you want. The website is extremely compatible with different types of image fiels (jpegs, gifs, etc) and it allows you to easily link an image to the room. Beyond image files I was impressed to see how easily it picked up on YouTube links, Soundcloud, and even files from my own website were easily embedded into the rooms.
The Hyperboring guide is simple to interact with. Use it to add text, videos, images, and more. Once added you can move things around, resize them, and distribute them to different layers.
Hyperboring has a How To section that also gives the rundown on the way the site works. This site has an amazing variety of rooms as well, with the future looking very good since users are able to create rooms themselves and easily help contribute to the site.
Side note: If you are browsing at work I also recommend that you beware since users are able to upload whatever they want to the site. Some of the imagery I saw there was NSFW.
Here are just a few rooms that I visited…
Mug Y’all – Seems like random madness, looks like random madness, is random madness.
Music and Other Weapons – Iconic Musicians, Beautiful instruments, Guns, Bullets, and more madness.
Computer Says No – The inside of someone’s imagination I presume?
Keep it short & boring - A collection of (short) YouTube videos. I found this one to be quite interesting!
The users on Hyperboring will often make group contributions to a page, this can result in a very entertaining experience for those involved. Check out this video that some of the users over at Hyperboring put together…
Pretty neat, huh? I’m gonna say it again, the possibilities are endless. It might seem like random fun at first glance but what we have here is something much deeper. This can be a great tool for people who work with eachother over the internet. It could even make a good online scrapbook of sorts. This website also has the ability to bring people closer together, imagine creating a room with one of your loved one’s and making contributions while talking, each day that page will fill up more and more and you can always look back at the memories that you put there.
Hyperboring made a great canvas and my GF and I used it to tell the story of our animation Foxy Apartment. This helps shed light on some of the other things this site could be used for.
I really think everyone could get a lot out of a website like this. Real time collaboration never felt so good. Go check it out for yourself, sign up for an account, create a room, invite your friends, loved one’s, and join this awesome community.
