Autonomous Movement

In thing we follow an elegantly simple approach: Your video = your avatar = you. You can move your video avatar freely in the huge two-dimensional meeting space.

Being able to zoom in and out is another natural gesture to make a meeting space yours as a group.

Use the conversation map to get an birds-eye overview of what's currently going on on the overall meeting space.

Conversations - the natural way

You can initiate conversations in the most human way - by moving closer to other participants. That creates a focused space for smaller groups.

Joining a conversation is similarly easy. Just move your video avatar closer to people already in a conversation.

When everything is said, you can leave the conversation by moving away. And the next inspiring talk can start.

Hand signs and emojiis

Hand Signs and Emojis

How is the current sentiment of the whole group or a subgroup? Facilitators want to "Read the Room" in order to be able to serve the group appropriately. Emojis with the full spectrum of sentiments support this need.

Hand signs allow the group to give feedback to each other - make decisions together, get the attention of the whole group or just say "Thank you".

I just love the fact that you can start conversations with whomever you want, I think it's brilliant.

Entering Thing is so refreshing. Brilliant for both participants and facilitators, rather than being constrained into a box, as is the case with Zoom or Teams, thing allows you freely move around to chat to those that are there, in pairs or in groups. This lovely feeling of freedom is both a joy and hugely productive.
