Finnish software company Solu on October 22 announced an exceptionally beautiful and innovative cloud-linked computer in San Francisco, USA, reported Finnish language newspaper Kaleva.
 
Solu is Finnish for “organic cell.” According to the manufacturer, the interface is intuitive, because it resembles the structure of the human brain. The small software firm wants to challenge giants like Microsoft and Apple with its convenient novelty.
 
The Oulu-manufactured, wood-encased computer is only about 10cm by 10cm. It has USB connectivity for keyboard and mouse. The machine has a small touch screen and works as a portable computer. It can also be used as an independent mobile device.
 
According to the manufacturer, the computer can do everything needed for office work. A new web browser has been developed for the small computer, but it also runs Android applications, including Microsoft Word.
 
The programs used by the Solu computer operate in the cloud, so that nothing needs to be installed on the device itself and there is no need for upgrades.
 
The users of the operating system have to pay a monthly fee of about $20. The computer can be pre-ordered through the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.
 
On Friday morning alone, the company raised 60,000 euros. Solu has released a promotional Youtube video featuring the rap artiste Paleface.
 
The company was founded in 2014 by three ambitious engineers from Finland – Kristoffer Lawson, Javier Reyes and Pekka Nikander.
