Oh, internet…how we love you. How much you give us; how much you take. You take, though, from willing donors – of time and attention and emotion – and give only as much as we ask for. We ask, though, a lot. Our demands are constant – give me news, music, movies, email, blogs, books, financial tools, games, friends, family, LOLCATS, viral videos; let me share my thoughts and ideas, pictures and videos, my designs and let me see everything going on in the lives of people I know (or “know”). Oh, and do it all now. It’s a tall order, and one that never ends. Sometimes we forget just how much we’re constantly asking for, and get frustrated when it’s not delivered at instantaneous speeds. When things slow down or the connection is weak, we get frustrated. Rightfully so, I think, and today’s project agrees, which is why the good people at Connectify are out to bring the internet to us in its full potential.
Dispatch will allow users to use every available internet connection simultaneously. An intutitive platform to automatically orchestrate the incoming and outgoing streams of information through numerous parallel connections on a single machine, it’s actually an amazing concept that might change the way we connect to the web forever.
For the first time, you can connect to the coffee shop Wi-Fi and your 4G mobile device, using both Internet connections for their combined speed, and increased reliability. With Connectify Dispatch, you can even use two different Wi-Fi networks at the same time. Just connect a secondary USB Wi-Fi card (complimentary for $100+ backers), in addition to your laptop’s on-board Wi-Fi card, and Dispatch does the rest. At the click-of-a-button, you’ll be cruising the web at warp speed, using the combined throughput of both wireless networks. Even if you lose connectivity on one of those networks, Dispatch keeps you online, seamlessly moving all of your traffic onto the working connection until both networks become available again.
Get connected, and connected again – stay plugged in and help bring this new chapter in interactivity to life by backing Dispatch on Kickstarter before September 7.
