With Backpack, we tried to make sense of how cloud computing is used and understood today. We took that information to make our own product, that was more intuitive for users to track their cloud data and see what was happening with it. Currently, people store and use a lot of data in the cloud, whether it's email, Netflix, Google Docs, Dropbox, iCloud, etc. We wanted to make accessing this data a seamless experience.
Backpack turns your mobile phone into a key, unlocking different devices and granting them access to your personal data. Any device can become your device with the relevant data pushed to your home desktop, friend’s Xbox, public workstation, or shared tablet. This eliminates the need to own and protect heavy, expensive computers and lets you concentrate on getting the job done.
The focus of Backpack isn’t on the organization or sharing of your files, but on the transportation and connectivity of this personal data to the electronics you use. Our goal is to create a seamless, simple, secure, and personal cloud experience for users and their data.
