With physical meetings replaced by a plethora of video calls we created D’Zoom, a handy tool to which interrupts your virtual meeting by simulating a poor internet connection.
Available to everyone, D’Zoom saw particular success saving politicians from awkward faux pas, home workers from moments when they weren’t paying attention, families from the embarrassment of a ‘politically incorrect’ relative, and teachers from constant bickering and interruptions.
Extra features include a self-dressing mode to automatically add clothes, a time keeping system offering free calls to the speaking clock so users never forgot what day it was, and exit cues – interruptions from a fictional virtual housemate or colleague to help you make your escape.
D’Zoom has successfully helped cut short over 350,000,000 unnecessary conversations a week.
Ok… so it may have been an April Fools, but it still got (and still gets) plenty of mentions on Twitter and over 45,000 visits.
“It’s like when you used to fake the static noises of entering a tunnel on an awkward phone call. Lots of ‘pssshh’-ing and ‘cssshh’-ing. But now all done for you by just opening the app!”
