Windows Phone 7 Series may not support full fledged multitasking. But thanks to Silverlight, it can support some pretty nifty 3D graphics effects. A group of developers showed off some neat, but mostly pointless tricks at the Tech Ed India conference recently.

The first tech demo shows a way to visualize all of your open web browser tabs in a 3D cube which you can spin around and around. Honestly, I can think of a few dozen better ways to navigate between browser tabs. But it sure is purty looking. You can check out a video below.

The second tech demo is just as pointless, but also just as cool. It shows a utility that lets you play a video — and then tilt it vertically or horizontally without disturbing the video playback. You can find a video of that below too.
