Charades is a common game played during the holidays, especially with your family at Christmas time. We recreated that friendly, fun and competitive game with a festive twist, harnessing the technology behind Google’s web speech API.
How did it work?
Due to workloads and budget constraints we couldn’t play the game live with our audience so we pre-recorded a selection of charades, acted out by myself and the lovely staff at LEWIS.
All players needed was Chrome and a microphone (if they didn’t they could type in their answers). They could then work their way through the rounds guessing charades by simply shouting answers at their computer. Once they either guessed a correct/incorrect word or the entire title, the game would automatically respond with the actors responding to a guess and the console filling in parts of the phrase until they completed it.
