Next-generation technology to bridge the digital divide


Introducing Puffin OS

Puffin OS is an open platform mobile OS derived from Android and use the Avatar Technology to shift workload from the local device to an avatar in the cloud.

On traditional mobile phones, the price and performance are highly correlated. High performance devices are pricier, affordable devices are slow and crappy.

With the Avatar technology, Puffin OS transforms mobile phones costing $100 or less into performance powerhouses.

Avatar Technology

Since the avatar runs in high performance computers on robust cloud infrastructure, it can execute applications efficiently, regardless the original device’s hardware limitations.

The avatars also protect devices by isolating unknown threats in the cloud, away from physical devices.

Open Platform

Unlike other proprietary platforms, Puffin OS is free from the regulations and exploitation on developers and users.

Developers can use open web standards like HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript to build mobile apps. Developers have freedom to release and distribute their mobile apps.
