If you are online right now on the “social networks” you must be as concerned as everyone else about the fact that they sell your personal information to advertisers and surrender your private data to the government without warrant or cause.
How can they do this? Simple, because you gave up all of your photos, personal information and content to their corporate servers, so they can do whatever they want with it. Well it’s time someone put a stop to that, and we have!
The genshi.box is a device that stores all of your content: data, photos, videos, blogs, contacts, etc.) while having the ability to create a private network amongst other users of the device (mesh networking) and when we hit our stretch goals, we will be able to offer access to our own Satellite Internet service, providing free Internet access with no monthly fees to everyone with the genshi.box device.
Once our goals mentioned above are achieved, genshi.lab will donate a genshi.box for every one that is sold as well as partnering with other Non-Profits and NGOs that can help get the genshi.box out to people with the need for this technology, but without the means.
In More Detail…
The basic idea of the genshi.box is that it’s an easy to use consumer device that replaces your current social networking page by allowing you to upload all of your photos and compose your daily posts directly onto the genshi.box that is sitting right next to you; giving you complete control over all of your content.
Why is this important? Because, as we all know by now, the social networking sites make their money in two ways. First, by posting advertisements all over your page and in your news feed, polluting what was once an ad-free browsing experience. Second, by selling all of your personal information, as well as your browsing habits, to advertisers that can further target you and track you as you navigate the world wide web… not to mention surrendering your private data to over-reaching governments without cause or warrant!
So the genshi.box is your solution to bringing back control of your digital life and maintaining your privacy.
At it’s core, the genshi.box is a simple to use file storage drive and web server which you can access from anywhere in the world using a web browser or the genshi.box app on your iPhone or Android device. But it’s more than that…
- A simple to use consumer friendly device to store all of your digital content
- A built-in blogging service which you can share securely with just your most trusted friends, or share with the global network of genshi.box users as well as the World Wide Web
- An online hub for genshi.box users to gather and chat
- Wireless connectivity
- Battery operated (with induction charging if we meet our first stretch goal)
- Create private networks between your friends; use multiple genshi.box devices for Mesh Networking (can be used as a FreedomBox)
- Completely secure through AES 256-bit encryption
- For advanced users, complete access to the Linux-based file system
And if we hit our biggest stretch goal, we want to provide free internet access to all genshi.box users via our own Satellite Network. (We’ve researched it, and it’s actually doable. We are looking into several partners to help with this as well.)
genshi.box is “Disruptive Innovation”. It will change everything… and we here at genshi.lab are committed to making both our real world and online world a better place for all. Please visit our indiegogo campaign and help by donating and or sharing the site to spread the word. Thank you!
