1.3. Reminds me of:

1.3.1. ChatRoulette but cleaner and safer and not as creepy and ...

1.4. From Google:

1.4.1. "With Hangouts, the unplanned meet-up comes to the web for the first time. Let specific buddies (or entire circles) know you’re hanging out and then see who drops by for a face-to-face-to-face chat. Until teleportation arrives, it’s the next best thing."
