Introducing the Nimbb Gadget: Ridiculously Easy Video Messaging in Outlook

by Josh Jacobson

In May, competitors from around the world participated in the Xobni Gadget Hack Day.  There were a number of very impressive entries, but the grand prize went to Montreal-based Benjamin Bérubé who created the Nimbb video gadget.  At the award ceremony, judge/blogger Michael Arrington praised its simplicity, usefulness, and integration with Outlook as the winning qualities.  Now it’s available for free in the Xobni Gadget Store.

Here’s a quick video of how it works:

In a nutshell, the Nimbb gadget has two parts:

  • The Nimbb gadget appears in the Xobni for Outlook sidebar and  allows you to quickly record, review, and send video messages made with your webcam.  An account is not required, and it’s totally free.
  • If someone sends you a Nimbb video via email, the video will automatically appear within the message,  allowing you to watch the video right inside of Outlook.

Nimbb‘s Benjamin Bérubé adds: “Xobni’s OpenSocial container allows us to focus on our video subscription services and not have to worry about the hassle of working in Outlook.”

So, if you have Outlook and are interested in video messages, head on over to get Nimbb from the Xobni Gadget Store.  Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Also – Benjamin will be showing his gadget at the International Startup Festival’s “Hack Your Email!” event tomorrow, July 13th, in Montreal.  If you’re in the area, pop in to say hello – he’s a good guy 🙂
