    Default Allowing your apps to be run by any user with a web browser

    Now this is really exciting.

    Basically, this may revolutionize how people run software applications and what devices they are ran on. It turns your browser into a virtualization. Meaning, it allows non windows devices to run your software.

    Got android users wanting to use your software, no problem. Mac users? No problem. This also means it can run on android tablets, ipads, phones...

    Everything is streamed from the cloud. Service anyone? Oh yeah.


    Check this video out.

    It is 3d max being run on a windows computer and firefox (which can be run on android or ios).

    I have a feeling it will be free. From reading a few sites, it sounds like patent fees isn't a motivating factor.

    Wow!

    Drooling... lol


    found this doc on a related search

    http://www.otoy.com/130501_OTOY_release_FINAL.pdf



    Did some more info digging, and trying to find more info on the Coder...

    -"The decoder might be open source but the situation about the rest of the technology is unclear."
    -" orbix.js is a decoder and there is little information on the coder end of the deal"

    Default Run your software through html 5 browsers!

    This type of app delivery is going to only get more popular which is great for us. Here is another company that has technology that will allow users of other operating systems like macs, ipads, android to use your software programs.

    It looks like Amazon is incorporating ORBX.js which should make available our software on any machine that has an html 5 browser. I posted about this technology in the first post of this thread.

    It streams software through the browser and that means mac users, android users (tablets and pcs) will be able to run our software.

    Some new mods to ESB and we can sell it as a service. This is a whole new world! I can't express how exciting this is going to be.

    Me TOO! haha

    I saw an example of this tech running 3d max (the video should be in one of the links in the first post) and that would be a pretty intensive program to run. It shouldn't have any problems with ours. I am hoping it will work well on mobile platforms like 3g and 4g. That way, people out in the field would have access and it opens up a lot more opportunities for us.
