There comes a point in every person’s life where they must ask themselves a couple of extremely important and life changing questions. Firstly, wouldn’t it be amazing if there were some way to control my Windows Media Centre using an application on my phone, and secondly, why hasn’t someone, perhaps some group of brilliant, bearded men, created this amazing application? Well question no more, mortal, for The Land Dolphin lurches forth ready to spew out said amazing application all over everyone’s faces in a vile, despicable stream. Of course by “their faces” I mean their “brand spanking new Windows Phone 7 devices”.
If that disgusting and altogether inaccurate description wasn’t enough to inform or terrify you, we’d like to take this opportunity to announce the first project to be developed by The Land Dolphin Collective: Meteor.
Meteor is the culmination of many months of brainstorming and torture in state of the art laboratories filled with equipment that would make Tesla and Genghis Khan both jealous and horrified in the same breath. It is an application that runs on your Windows Phone 7 device that, when coupled with a small service on your Windows Media Centre machine, allows you to remotely access and play all of your albums, TV shows and movies in a wonderful, integrated, “Metro” experience.
Meteor is personal – It’s your media library, it’s your media centre. Use it the way you like to.
Meteor is relevant – You should know what’s going on just by looking at your device. What have you already watched or listened to?
Meteor is connected – Would you like to be reminded of something when you’re not at home? Would you like to be surprised when you’re reminded of something you’d forgotten about?
Meteor is something that we’re pretty proud of, and that’s one of the things we want to emphasise. If we didn’t think this would be a cool, integrated and ultimately useful experience, then we wouldn’t do it. So we hope that you all think the same way.
