Project Tripod

Way back in late June we showed you guys and gals the early work of an upcoming app for Windows Phone called Project Tripod. It’s an app that aims to eliminate the need for tripods with a unique social twist. Think of it as a virtual tripod. But if you’re having trouble imaging the app, there’s a video below of it in action. Let’s check it out.

Project Tripod comes to us from the land down under. It also happened to secure nearly $70,000 in funding from the App Campus program between Microsoft and Nokia. Think of it as a quick injection of cash to turn ideas into apps and services. Unlike traditional funding routes, neither Microsoft nor Nokia will take a stake in the company receiving funds. Instead, the company taking the money agrees to make their app exclusive to Windows Phone for 90 days before building on iOS or Android.

With that little background, here’s Project Tripod being demoed on stage at TechEd Australia.

Interested in being one of the first to play with Project Tripod? Follow the link below to sign up for their beta. Right now the team estimates that in 5 weeks they’ll be ready for the public beta, so you can pencil October the 18th as the tentative day to get your hands on it.

It will be available for Windows Phone 8, it will come to Android and iOS later. Unfortunately, due to technical restrictions there won’t be a Windows Phone 7.x version of Project Tripod.

That was a small sampling of the TechEd conference in Australia. You can watch the entire keynote on Channel 9.
