Vimeo Couch Mode

I just got done poking around Vimeo Couch Mode, which Vimeo just launched today.

As the name implies, Couch Mode allows you to watch Vimeo on your TV while chilling on your couch (or any other seat I presume). One major thing though, is that you need Google TV, which I don’t have or know anyone who does. Otherwise, you are stuck to the desktop version, which isn’t that bad.

From Vimeo:
Couch Mode is optimized for Google TV and will be available in the Spotlight section soon. Don’t have a Google TV? No worries, Couch Mode will work on your desktop too. However, we use a lot of HTML5 and CSS3 technology for this (no Flash!), so at the moment it will only work on Chrome and Safari.

Click HERE to check out a sample video. From there (if you have a vimeo account), you can go to “my videos” and check out your stuff bigger and sweeter.

After first inspection, this seems pretty cool, but I don’t really spend all that much time on Vimeo for this to make me do naked cartwheels down the street. This does seem to be a cool function though.
