Creative collaboration benefits from immediacy -- when creators can gather in the same space and brainstorm at will -- and while video chatting services like Skype are helpful, the Lotus app is bringing collaborative creativity a step farther. The app provides a virtual whiteboard that lets its users draw in real time, no matter where they are.
Lotus is ideal for designers working on big projects across multiple cities, although its functionality is hardly limited by project type. Lotus is just as adaptable as a physical whiteboard, allowing its users tabula rasa to draw or sketch whatever suits them. The Lotus app comes equipped with a color wheel, so sketching can be as intricately detailed or simplistic as need be.
The networked creativity engendered by the Lotus app allows for a more effective creative industry, especially when cultural hubs are becoming more and more globalized.
