Since 2015 we are working up Virtual Space — an operating system as a part of WEB
This decision is a part of webOS and it represents a platform of web-applications in a form of desktop with default applications and a library of exterior apps, which are interacting with each other as a part of a platform. In other words, this is an OS with sites instead of programs.
Since Internet has become popular the number of sites is growing up, but the way of working with them is staying the same. Same searching of necessary resources, same tabs, same password games and so on. Internet is a depository of potential, which must be realized. We need new mechanisms, which will make working with sites simpler and propel it to the next level.
Imagine a case: you need to give an apple to your friend, which is staying within a stone’s-throw, but you can do this only by intermediary, who isn’t always works fast. The same is happening when you’re using internet. You need to download a picture from one site and upload it to another. Instead of dragging it over or using a command for sending a file from site A to site B, you are downloading the picture on your device, for uploading it on another site after. We consider this way is not an option and we should create a solution, which will improve cooperation between sites.
Sources well-made solutions in mobile context — catalogs such as App Store and Google Play. They provide some kind of moderation among adding apps to a catalog; systems of rating and adding comments. It allows users to get safe and qualitative app fast, read some comments and leave their own. At the same time, these catalogs allow access to huge audience for young developers, who can concentrate on a quality of app instead of advertising.
During working with browsers, you may will request assistance of the searching machine and will try to find required site there, but every time it’s a pig in a poke. Often a lot of good decisions are staying on lower positions just because of low budget of an advertising campaign. We must create an environment with moderation of integrated decisions, systems of rating and adding comments for development of better in quality web-apps.
Virtual Space — is the beginning of a long way. We are sure that decentralization of WEB, fighting between platforms and devices based on thin client are things of the future.
The main aim of VS is the development of platform for web-apps. If you are owner of the site, which supplies demanded service, you can add your app to our service without big financial or time expenditures. You are giving us a front-end of your decision, matched VS style (like an adaptive mobile version). Next step is moderation, then works with API. After a successful integration, your app will appear in a catalog. You will get some new clients, new opportunities and a feedback, without paying a great attention to your app, connected with absence of necessity at working with technologies except WEB.
- Personal Helper V
Web-app, integrated in VS, is giving us API, which is used by our personal helper V. At the command line you are making a request for doing something for example: copy folder *text to folder *studies, turn on *Depeche mode, order a pizza *Margarita from *vpizza… Imagine opportunities of helper, which has thousands of functions of hundreds of apps in its base. Adding machine learning and an integration with “smart house” systems to it, we are getting something, which could be called artificial intelligence.
- Cooperation of web-apps
One of the most important aims of VS is ensuring interaction of web apps as part of the platform and outside the platform. It would be done with help of our UniTypes technology: developer, during integration of his solution to a platform, points types of materials, which his app is working with. After doing that, this app is interacting with other, if they are having common types of materials, like, for example, dragging out messages from one messenger to another. Development of UniTypes technology lead us to new opportunities at the sphere of corporative information systems and at the mass sphere. In the future, sites, which were integrated to VS, are getting an opportunity to add a special panel with the pick of distinct functions for interaction outside VS. For example, ordering a book from a website, in this panel you can pick “upload to Dropbox”.
- Corporative desktop
Business-model of VS is based on 2 revenue resources: sale fee from apps and corporative desktop. The first one is clear, this is the common and the best way of monetizing of this type of solution: we are giving you a client, then we are having our sale fee, this is the way how Google and Apple work on mobile market. When it comes to a desktop, this is more interesting. The difference of corporative desktop is therein it has distinct complex of solution and developed settings for interacting between these desktops. For example, desktop for large businesses №4 “CRM Alpha + ERP Beta + workflow system Gamma”. More and more corporative systems are using cloud technologies, so this decision is perspective and relevant, and, what is even more important, profitable.
- Driving programs from your PC
This function is firstly realized for demonstrating how VS could become a base for development devices based on a thin client. You’re downloading a program, for example, on your desktop computer, and choose programs, which you want to drive remotely. Then you’re leaving your computer turned-on and you can without installing new software open these programs in the browser of your phone or tablet, videlicet using VS. Now not the whole desktop is being translated, but just a launched program. In the nearest future, launched in this way app will be able to interact with web-apps. Thanks to this technology, we will erase the boundaries between web-apps and native software on your PC.
