IA - Individual Assistant, it is a reverse of AI - Artificial Intelligence.

IA is a personal device with a number of unique features. Initially the device was developed to be used together with webRunes projects, however since it is an open platform, independent webprojects and applications can be coded for IA. It is possible to use webRunes data bases. Moreover, one will eventually have an opportunity to distribute applications through (scheduled to be launched in 2014) both on a paid and free basis. IA is a modular project. Its base platform may be later upgraded with developed hard- and software modules performing specific functions, such as: education, personal preventive remote healthcare, emergency care, handicapped people assistant, sport, finances, law, smart home and many other features that will be described separately. To build their own applications and modules third parties will be able to use webRunes API. Besides, in case of a breakdown or new versions, the modular nature of the system will allow you to replace only those components of IA that require it.one have an opportunity to distribute applications through (scheduled to be launched in 2014) both on a paid and free basis.IA is a modular project.

Specifications

The first version of IA will be based on Raspberry Pi.

Raspberry Pi is a mini-computer in the form of a PCB consisting of four layers as big as a credit card. The system will use model B. The root file system, core image and user files will be stored on SD or SDHC memory card. IA will use ArchLinux as its operating system, ARM11 processor Broadcom BCM2835 with 700 MHz clock frequency and RAM 256 Mb. Beside the primary core, BCM2835 ihcludes graphics engine that supports OpenGL ES 2.0, hardware acceleration and FullHD video, and digital signal processor core. The video signal output will be through a composite RCA jack or digital HDMI interface.

Input/Output:

  • USB 2.0
  • Ethernet
  • SD Card Slot
  • Micro USB Power
  • Audio Jack
  • RCA Video
  • HDMI

The following versions will be equipped with:

  • GPRS – mobile Internet function
  • GPS – satellite navigation system
  • NFC – mobile wallet function
  • Wi-Fi – wireless communication and Internet
  • Bluetooth – communication with IA modules and third-party devices
  • radio module
  • and some other

Vault. Bitcoin. I2P

Vault is a cryptosecure storage of personal data. Our policy is to work only for the benefit of the user, with the maximum confidentiality being our priority. Taking into account the global tendency to strengthen the control over the Internet and censorship, the system is based on the principles that prevent anyone, including state services and Internet providers, from monitoring the activity or access data restricted by the user. To spare you necessity of taking our words for credit, we will make the source code of Vault available for study and/or free modification with the possibility of the consequent installation of your own server outside webRunes.

Vault can store any information: pictures, audio and video files, documents, archives. Besides, Vault can support an unlimited number of profiles that can be immediately connected to websites based on webRunes technology. Initially, these will be all stores and websites developed on the webRunes platform. Store profile will be used to provide the necessary data to webstores, social profile will be used to connect to social networks and etc. The delivery address has been changed?  You need only to change the data in the Store profile and they will be automatically downloaded into all the stores using Vault technology. Each website will obtain only such information, which is required to provide the services but no further.

Unlike other data storage services, Vault will take into account only actually used resources, i.e. the user will pay for the actually used space and traffic, without the necessity to make monthly payments. The prices has not been set yet, however at least 1GB space&traffic per month will be free. Moreover, we plan discounts or increases of free limits for non-profitable projects related to education, healthcare, environmental and animal protection and some other social sphere. Bitcoin will be used as a payment means for webRunes products and services. More info can be found at official website http://bitcoin.org/. In 2013 Vault will support I2P. All information on I2P can be found at official website http://www.i2p2.de/

It shall be noted that a possibility will be provided to install your own Vault, which can be connected to Vault-servers of your friends directly via P2P or through webRunes servers. We will also provide the service of installing an individual instance in the Amazon cloud, which can be accessed only by you.

Your Vault account may also be used as a mail box with the address like username@webrunes.com, or your private Vault server like username@yourdomainname-or-ip

IA holster

IA will be placed in a soft holster case. In this way you obtain a mobile device and have no fear it will be stolen, lost or dropped. The shoulder-straps will carry the power supply cables and contact wires to external sensors and devices, such as Wishmasters or Augmented Reality Glasses. In time it is planned to develop Bluetooth versions. The case is developed in such a way, as to make it possible to place it either on the left or on the right part of the body. An alternative case position is possible.

What your contribution will help us do

We have worked for almost 2 years on IA and have spent $50,000+ to make everything ready for the production. We will spend about $50,000 more by the end of this year to develop the necessary software and to launch the product. However we do need your help for the final step:

  • $31k, first production run

The first batch will be ready for demonstration and shipment in Autumn 2012. Please note we will send only IA case without Raspberry Pi because we do not produce it.

What you'll get. What's coming next

So, what will you eventually get in the beginning of 2013? First of all, a free platform to realize any possible projects on the basis of IA, a secure data Vault that can be installed on your PC, IA or operated under cloud platform webRunes. You‘ll be able to store: your correspondence, blog entries, documents, profiles, music and photo galleries and etc. You will be provided with a possibility to synchronize data with local and/or cloud Vault. Besides it will support and ensure security of your Bitcoin wallet. Anyone who feels like it will have access to our data base damps. DIY manual will be available for download. All above mentioned will be available as open source. Soon other modules will be developed. The first will be a module supporting I2P and P2P communication between users bypassing webRunes server. This will ensure protection of your correspondence and all the other transferred data against third parties. Development of Wishmasters starts in 2012.

Other ways you can help

Please do not hesitate to share info about the project in any way you like. Money is cool, but we need your support and warm words around the project!

Thank you for your attention and support!
