Mindgine Unveils First Social OS and Mini-computer To Power Cloud Networks

Mindgine, a Chicago. IL.-based not for profit technology company is set to launch its Mindebian Micro and Mindebian X micro-computers that interface with a social cloud network, enabling users to take advantage of various open-source applications while saving significant amount of energy. Mindgine has created two versions of a plug computer that is environment friendly, provides unrestricted access to numerous applications and protects user’s privacy and security in the Cloud, the company said. It took two years of research before the company was able to unveil the new platform with its research team working on projects for NASA, General Motors, Bosch, Ford, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Northrop Grumman, Google, Facebook, and Etas in the meantime.

Mindebian Micro and Mindebian X are using an operating system named Mindebian OS and allow users to control the plug computers from over 13,000 mobile devices via Internet. Enthusiasts are encouraged and allowed to create create new applications within the community as well s new hardware aimed at enhancing the functionality of the system. The platform also allows users to upload, share and stream files via other social network websites like Facebook, the company explained.

The company’s operating system provides compatibility with all major operating systems like  Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Mac OS X and Mac 10.4 and above, and Linux 32bit kernel and features unlimited capability for widespread used mobile platforms such as iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Windows. Users can utilize Mindebian computers in various ways with Mindebian Micro and Mindebian X being able to act as an external firewall, IP camera controller, virtual private network, proxy, transcoder, game emulator, etc.
Mindgine computing is completely nonrestrictive and interacts with the evolving world of mobile communication, yet at the same time is energy-resource friendly and contributes positively to research development in science, medicine, and technology. We believe in a community courageous enough to calculate mankind’s greatest queries with a philanthropic approach,” Peter Wojtowicz, Mindgine CEO, said in a press release.

Actually, Mindebian OS is the first social operating system intended to power a social cloud consisting of micro computers. Broadly speaking, users create their own cloud server by installing and activating their micro-computers, which use their idle processor time to process information for Berkley’s Open Infrastructure for Network Computing. Mindebian Micro and Mindebian X offer different processing power with Mindebian Micro being depicted as the smallest plug computer in the world, which in addition uses far less energy that “traditional” PCs. For its part, Mindebian X features nearly three times more processing power than the base model allowing users to conduct more intensive researches, the company explained.

Moreover, users are able to direct their own computers’ computing power to a research project of their choice. Therefore, a Mindebian user can re-direct computer’s power to conduct researches in various scientific fields like astronomy, biology and medicine, humanities, etc., depending on his interests and preferences.

A Mindebian plug computer costs only USD 61 while the company offers early access to its beta platform for just one U.S. dollar. In addition, Mindgine plans to give free mini-computers to college students, developers, and others who contribute to the cloud-based community and share their innovative vision for social cloud computing.

The Mindebian concept means developers are only limited by their imagination, not by resource or finance. There is a realm of super computing developers haven’t yet had the chance to create, and Mindgine are here to facilitate that realm and ensure it becomes a mainstream reality,” Tomasz Wojtowicz, Mingine CFO, revealed.

Mindebian’s mini-computer conception and the release of Mindebian OS illustrates how fast cloud computing evolved in the past couple of years. One should expect more projects like this to emerge in the years to come, despite that utilizing idle computing power of PCs is not a new idea, and more computing communities like Mingine to come to life. A totally interconnected world affords limitless opportunities to researchers and average users to utilize the power of their computer to the maximum possible extent. Cloud computing is just one of the solutions but it also offers other advantages like social networking capabilities and rapidly growing number of open-source applications running in the Cloud. We have to see whether Mingine’s experimental project will be a huge success or another nine days’ wonder, however, their efforts should be admired for Mingine’s innovative approach sets an example of clever utilization of cloud computing capabilities and potential.
