New Project: Tincan’d

This post originally appeared on Pointless Corp.

When you were a kid, did you ever make a telephone out of two tin cans and a string? I did. It never worked very well, but it sure was simple. Wouldn’t it be great if there were an equally simple way to do video chats? Now there is.

We needed a simple way to jump on quick video chats with our co-workers at Viget — one without logins or annoying, unprofessional ads — so we built Tincan’d on top of the OpenTok API. We’ve been using it internally for some time with good success, and now we’re ready to share it with a friends. Feel free to add your name on the email form if you’re interested in trying out the beta. If that goes well, we’ll open it up to a wider audience soon.

Brian is Viget's co-founder and CEO. He does everything from advising our clients to building our conference tables with his bare hands in our Falls Church, VA, HQ.
