About

“OVER DROID” is a Grid computing (alias : Distributed Computing) BOINC exclusive use, Ultra small computing machine by Icesword. No troublesome setting or operation is required. “BOINC” will start as soon as connecting two cables. The results obtained by the BOINC calculation are utilized in various research around the world, and can contribute to the future and the development of mankind. Furthermore, “OVER DROID” fuses entertainment elements such as comics and animation by original characters. The world’s first BOINC entertainment computer that makes social contribution more easily and fun by grid computing. That is “OVER DROID”.  

When "OVER DROID" reaches you, grid computing "BOINC" can be started immediately. Open the box and connect the power cable and LAN cable connected to the Internet to "OVER DROID". No troublesome setting or operation is necessary. Your "OVER DROID" will start the computation leading to the universe.

The power of OVER DROID is from microUSB. Since it is a simple design, it turns on and off by plugging in and unplugging the power cable. Required power capacity: 5V/2.4A Energy conservation with about 5 W power consumption during calculation processing. Also, OVER DROID is very compact and not takes up space. A simple body made up of two plate cases and base does not interfere with the interior no matter where it is placed in the room. In everyday life, volunteer to lead a little to the universe. A romantic volunteer, that is OVER DROID. 

 Also, the "OVER DROID" you choose is linked with the character "Overdroid". All OVER DROID calculation results are automatically compiled for each character, and numbers and graphs are announced at the official WEB site. Furthermore, the calculation result and progress contents of the research project are reflected in entertainment works such as comic books and illustration provided by Icesword, and you can see their success.

There are currently two types of "BOINC" projects that you can participate by "OVER DROID". "Analysis of gravitational wave data (Einstein@Home)” and “Exploration of extraterrestrial intelligent life forms (SETI@home)" Check on the project you want to participate, please choose from six types of bodies.

We want to spread grid computing. We are acting because we simply think that this grid computing is "interesting". And we think that it is important to be "interesting". With that feeling, we can continue our activities and challenge new things. I believe so. In order to convey this "interesting" to more people, Icesword Inc. was born. Tomorrow, a quantum computer with overwhelming computing power is put to practical use and calculations for several years may be over in a moment. Some people think that grid computing is inefficient. But, until now it has been obvious that the computer will evolve everyday, but how many things called supercomputers have been made? Today, by advancing the BOINC project, we can contribute to society steadily by gradually advancing world research. Even though it will be inefficient compared to supercomputers, even if the same amount of calculations are handled instantly in the future, by increasing the knowledge of "now" human beings. The life saved and the environment to be improved will be more. If you think grid computing that "interesting", It means that participation in grid computing can be established as a social system, You can believe that you have a possibility to evolve dramatically than the current situation that is made up by public institutions and few mania. To the world where people and people, computers and computers "grid" with each other. Let's change the future by participating in grid computing along with icesword Inc. 

Risks and challenges

The Kickstarter project is always accompanied by risks, but our team has sought to minimize them. We completed as much work as possible in advance.
In the unlikely event of any problems in production, we will promptly update the information, announce what is happening and the correspondence.
