For the first time online, people will be able to instantly collaborate with people locally and globally. - Adekunle Ayodele, founder of Meetorbit.com and chief executive officer of DataBox Technologies, LLC
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
Today, DataBox Technologies, LLC launched the beta version of its new digital platform, http://www.MeetOrbit.com. The site uses video chat technology to connect everyday people with celebrities, mentors, and people in their local communities and from around the world.
"For the first time online, people will be able to instantly collaborate with people locally and globally," according to Adekunle Ayodele, founder of Meetorbit.com and chief executive officer of DataBox Technologies, LLC. "We wanted to build a site that improves the lives of others and reinvents the social networking experience," he added.
The site is based on a galactic theme and has four planets or sub-sites with unique purposes and features:
Meet A Friend™. Connect and collaborate with friends and the world around you with live video chat. One of this planet’s key features is the Profile Video™ (patent pending). Each profile has a dynamic 3-second video that appears to be a still photo then "comes to life" once a mouse hovers over the picture. This feature promotes a safer online environment as it helps to authenticate the identity of each person on the site.
“We wanted to reinvent profile pictures and create a picture that has movement. This video picture will become the signature feature of each persona on the site," said Terica Scott, chief strategy officer of DataBox Technologies, LLC.
Another significant innovation on this planet is the Video Shuffle Chat. This feature is a video chat that brings ten random people together in one virtual "meeting room". People can sort the people in the room by age, location, and gender then invite one user at a time to a live video chat session.
Meet A Mentor™ This planet focuses on helping people to advance and improve their lives both personally and professionally through meaningful mentor relationships. Mentors set aside time to chat live online with mentees and share resources and products in the eLibrary online marketplace.
Meet A Star™ This planet features a patent pending online celebrity auction where people can bid to chat live with celebrities.
"Gone are the days of simply following celebrities that you admire. People can come to MeetOrbit.com and chat with them from the comfort of their home," said Ayodele. This online auction is a true game-changer. "We hope to grow to feature prominent celebrities from across the globe who want to take advantage of an unlimited earning potential and make real connections with their fans," he continued.
The Exchange Forum™ planet is an information and content powerhouse comprised of multimedia discussions forums, info graphics, comic strips, articles, and the 12-person IdeaLounge™ video group chat with a virtual IdeaSwap™ whiteboard.
"We plan to curate powerful content that sparks conversation and inspires people to engage, share, and chat with each other instantly." Scott said.
The site is free to join and will host many free live events throughout the year hosted by MeetOrbit.com celebrities and mentors.
The company plans to release a mobile application version of the site during beta and plans to launch the platform in Africa on May 11 preceded by a local media tour at an invitation only event at the Four Points by Sheraton in Lagos, Nigeria. The event will broadcast live on http://www.meetorbit.com/live from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. WAT.
