Creating concepts for new grounds has been our aim since the company was founded. Being enthusiastic gamers in our sparetime, we often talked about visionary concepts concerning game design, game concepts and the use of next gen gaming capabilities.
Letting our weird minds freely run we now started a project for doing a next gen game design that will melt together old fashioned ideas with current and future technologies, aswell as provide what is most important in terms of gaming:
As we’re active in the field of game concepts and game development, we always keep an eye on the current news of the game industry and how the market develops. Therefore being active gamers in our sparetime, we gather a lot of information that we decided to share now.
We just launched our new project “Die AuftragsChiller” some time ago, informing other gamers about news and posting interesting articles under the claim “By Gamers for gamers with gamers”.
We should mention, that the blog is in Germany only, but if it prooves to be successful there also could be a english version of it some day.
So if you’re speaking German, we would love to welcome you on www.Die-AuftragsChiller.de.
Searching for a way to get rid of overhead and a fast and comfortable way to work on our online projects we have always been early adopters of new ideas and technology.
We also started using Chromebooks on the road and lately to be precise the “HP Chromebook 11”.
We decided to give this rather new platform a shot, because we already ported all our project documents over to GoogleDocs that can be worked on in the team.
Another advantage of the Chromebooks is the fact that you can basically log on to any of the chromebooks and start working with access to all the mails and documents.
Some think of it as a problem that you have to use Google accounts for it and all documents are hosted over at Google’s servers. To avoid this we don’t have any of the customers access informations on the Google accounts. Everyone has a personal flash drive with the personal project files on it and we’re using a private web based cloud service on our servers for the sensitive informations and documents.
The fact that you basically have to be online to work with the Chromebooks is also not really a problem, as the collaboration depends on the active network connection anyway and by now you have a working WiFi almost everywhere.
As a bonus the HP Chromebook 11 is surprisingly cheap and looks very stylish. It’s also nice to use during meetings as there is no system fan or any other mechanical parts that create disturbing noises.
For us, the Chromebooks are the perfect worktool that help to get our jobs done with a minimum of required space, a great display, good keyboard and a responsive touchpad.
When giving it a shot you should still keep in mind that accessing POP3 or IMAP accounts depend on web clients, but you can use the google account you have to use to authenticate to collect the mails from the mailserver and there is even a really good offline app. You also have to set up the office apps so that they can be used in offline mode, which is a fast and easy process.
If you’re interested to integrate Chromebooks in your company environment, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for more informations.
As you surely noticed, mobilexplore is no more and the domain is forwarded to this shiny new place.
It’s always sad when a project ends, but I started WEIRD MINDS already some time ago to distribute innovative ideas and concepts, aswell as being active in a broader field of expertise.
