In the last weeks we got pretty excited about the idea of using timed comments to create and script rich media experiences. Imagine being able to trigger all kinds of visualizations & interactions for a timed comment while playing a track.
We've already built a few experiments around this concept:
WaveRaid lets you literally play a track. Collect all the timed comments using the play button as your space ship.
With StoryWheel you can create a slideshow from your Instagram pictures and record your story around them. It's using the timed comments to store where each picture has to show up. Alex & Eric used this to tell the story of SoundCloud.

We are looking forward to all the innovative apps & hacks you can come up with using this! As always, we are happy to hear your ideas & thoughts about this.
