If you feel overwhelmed with the amount of paperwork and boring administration tasks you need to carry out on your computer, office or home. You may be interested in a new piece of kit called FriendlyStack designed by the development team at Friendly River based in Basel, Switzerland. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about how the small device can manage both physical and electronic documents as well as photos and videos. Best of all unlike cloud solutions, there is no recurring service fee.
“I’ve created FriendlyStack because I couldn’t find a commercial solution that would take care of all the boring work, without adding more boring work. For me, developing FriendlyStack was an opportunity to turn boring work into exciting work. For you FriendlyStack is the opportunity to eliminate boring work and focus on whatever makes you happy! FriendlyStack consists of three components: the FriendlyStack Control Unit, a dedicated computer with some smart software (acts as a server that stores, encrypts and retrieves your data) as well as a document scanner. As an appliance FriendlyStack plays nicely along with Macs, Windows and even Linux. FriendlyStack is scalable and affordable as its hardware requirements flexibly adapt to your budget and your performance needs.”
FriendlyStack has this week launched by Kickstarter and is now available to back with early bird pledges available from £136 If all goes well worldwide shipping is expected to take place during December 2018. “Like other appliances (think of a photocopier or a toaster) FriendlyStack is designed to fulfill its purpose as simply and efficiently as possible. FriendlyStack was designed with lazy people in mind. Managing your stuff with FriendlyStack is effortless and doesn’t require a PhD in Computer Wizardry (this is why FriendlyStack’s Control Unit has just one button).” You own the hardware FriendlyStack runs on and you own also FriendlyStack which is available as open source software and hardware.
