Hackathon Hacker Builds Working iPhone-based Torrent Streamer

Carnegie Mellon student and a future Google intern Sohail Prasad built a working torrent streamer at this weekend’s TC Hackaton and demoed it to us today after tweaking a few things. The product will be available soon at Nowstre.am and Sohail is trying to figure out a more, shall we say “legal,” use case for the product.

The app allows you to grab a torrent link, pass it to the interface, and then begin streaming the video instantly. We saw it work at Disrupt but, obviously, he wants to assure you and the MPAA that he means no harm.

You can sign up for the beta or you can see the product in Sohail’s demo video below.
