Even though we live in an age of online communities and instant walkthroughs, there’s a human factor out there that all this technology just cannot touch. For instance, imagine being able to offer rapid-fire communication with visual aids. Hell, as much as I love YouTube, doing just that takes time. What you need is a platform that will allow you to offer such communication, instantly. What you need quite frankly, is PixiClip.

The program has plenty of art tools for you to pick up and do just so. Need to walk someone through some files and pictures? Upload them instantly, fire up your webcam, say what you need to say and hey presto! An instant video without the need for tedious uploading or conversions into a friendlier visual format.

It’s a fantastic tool, and the potential applications are staggering.
