CommunityCube Launches Kickstarter to Fund Citizen-Driven Parallel Internet
HAMBURG, Germany, May 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Hardware startup CommunityCube has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the build and development of a plug-and-play open source, small server designed to build a cooperative, fair internet where users’ privacy and rights are protected.
The server bundles open source hardware and software to provide a streamlined experience, even if they don’t have knowledge of cyber security technology or programming.
“Average Internet users don’t have access to the tools to protect themselves from spying corporations or governments,” says co-founder Jonay Sanz. “We want to build a tool that anyone can use, even if they don’t have a technical background.”
CommunityCube is the physical layer, rendering secure cloud-based services over a grid, where everybody has equal power. When deployed, each cube acts as an independent node in a citizen-fueled parallel Internet, where users can be completely anonymous while also taking advantage of fully encrypted, decentralized cloud storage.
Each CommunityCube comes with the following fully assembled and operative hardware configuration:
