Hybrid Personal Computing
Convergent EvolutionSince 2006, Over the Sun's Principal Kai Staats has studied the evolution of personal computers and PDAs and how they are received by both domestic and international markets. Staats developed a model, working prototype, and patent portfolio around a space then only in its infancy. In 2008 Staats traveled to India, Singapore, and the Philippines to learn about the needs of individual and government users in these growing market segments.
Staats wrote, "Personal electronics are rapidly evolving to unify multiple devices into single, highly portable PDAs. Cell phones integrate organizational, communication, and personal entertainment applications while laptops offer solid state storage with longer battery life and lighter weight products at a price similar to high-end cell phones.
Consumers in both established and developing economies are finding the new, less expensive personal computers not only required for success within a more international, global economy, but also within reach of their disposable income."
Research & DevelopmentOver the Sun believes an opportunity exists to bring to market a new kind of personal computer, an evolutionary jump in both hardware and software, tightly integrated to enable personal ideation and interconnected, local and global collaboration. Over the Sun has developed a patent portfolio which challenges this rapidly evolving, world-wide market opportunity.
