If you use online services for cloud storage and social networking but are concerned about privacy and rising costs you might be interested in a new project called Pixeom which has been built using the awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC.
Pixeom is a Raspberry Pi Personal Cloud Device and Exchange Network which has been created to allow users to easily create, access, and share their content from anywhere, while connecting with a global community, through the use of a secure Pixeom X1 device power by the Raspberry Pi.
Pixeom X1 has been built using the Raspberry Pi development board and is a small personal cloud device that facilitates file storage, collaboration, social networking, and e-commerce, by acting together with other Pixeom X1 devices to power a community-built independent network away from corporate business. Sam Nagar the co-founder explains:
“While there are other cloud services on the market today, Pixeom is transformational in combining cloud storage, being a gateway to a global community, where content sharing, e-commerce, collaboration and relationship building is made possible. We have created a truly boundary-less content sharing and e-commerce platform without rules and limits imposed on its users by other cloud service providers,”
The Personal Exchange Network Apps facilitate three types of content exchanges:
– File Exchange App – enables Pixeom users to store and share files with built-in synchronization and commenting for collaboration, as well as versioning for convenient recovery.
– Club Exchange App – provides Pixeom users the ability to create interactive discussion boards and build social communities around topics of interest, or allow businesses to foster communication with customers and partners.
– Market Exchange App – allows Pixeom users to create interactive virtual stores or list individual items for sale via the network, the app is developed to be simple and turnkey, including payment processing, inventory management, and CRM
The Pixeom project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Pixeom is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Pixeom become a reality.
