Mibo video chat option for informal meetings

Mibo is very easy to set up and facilitates informal chatting and networking online. It advertises itself as taking the awkwardness out of remote meetings and certainly based on our first testing of it, this is the case. It runs in your browser – just Chrome for the moment – and uses your webcam and microphone to turn you into a mix of an avatar and a dalek on screen (for anyone who remembers daleks that is!). One of the features that looks really interesting is the fact that you can move around and the sound volume adapts itself, so you hear people who are near. You can set it up your own room with limited options for free, monthly subscriptions start when you want to invite more than 12 people at a time. Check it out.
