Show HN: My Implementation of "Quick, Draw", a Game Developed by Google (github.com)

"Live drawing". Very cool and plenty of possibilities here. Shared whiteboards for one. But does anyone remember the flash game "I'm in Like With You" from around 2007? You compete in a chat room with 8 other players. First one who guesses the picture being drawn wins. Usually with funny words such as "Squidward". Kind of a web based charades ;)

Do you mean something like https://skribbl.io/ ?

My head was spinning for a bit because I thought this was referring to the ancient classic Macintosh graphics API:


Edit: the original title had "QuickDraw" which has since been updated to "Quick, Draw."

That wasn't the QuickDraw that came to my mind

Because Google's is named "Quick, Draw!"

For a reference: https://quickdraw.withgoogle.com/ / https://experiments.withgoogle.com/quick-draw

// This and some variation of "Quick, Draw" was presented two (?) years ago in many meetups (co-)organized by Google.

Edit: Also worth taking a look at: https://www.autodraw.com/ / https://experiments.withgoogle.com/autodraw

Ok, we've put in some punctuation above.

Thanks dang!

That demo is awesome! I wonder what real world uses this could be applied to.

By the way, your animated GIF is over 80 MB. You might want to put the video on YouTube or use an animated PNG.

There is this file: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vietnguyen91/QuickDraw/mas... (4.5 MB) but github won't preview it.

Very cool. Is there a writeup somewhere?
