Graz, Austria — On July 18 2017, e.com launched a Kickstarter campaign for connect, a virtual home (in 2D, 3D, or VR) where you can do whatever your heart desires. This includes social networking, chat, photography, listening to music, reading, surfing the web, furnishing your apartment, playing games, petting your virtual pet, or simply relaxing.
“connect is a free Digital Life Network,” said the team, “In this app – which is compatible with almost all devices – anything is possible that the internet has to offer. In your virtual loft, which can be accessed through your smartphone, your tablet, your Mac or PC, or your gaming console, you can stream music and videos, answer messages, read newspapers, play games, and much more.”
What is great about this app is that it is completely customizable to your personal taste. Design your home exactly the way you want it, down to the furniture and art work. Thanks to a worldwide media-cooperation, content of various big newspapers and magazines will be available to you free of charge, along with films, radio programs, and web portals.
A lot of work has gone into the creation of this unique platform that lets you connect with the things and people you love via any mobile device and various messaging services. The best part is that even with all these capabilities, connect was designed to be extremely intuitive and easy to use. Whether you experience connect in 2D, 3D, or VR, the experience is meant to be relaxing and fun.
“The special feature of our social network is that we – unlike our competitors – do not aim at collecting our users’ data or selling personal information. Messages sent via connect are end-to-end encrypted,” the creators explained, “We will finance our business through voluntary product placement, in-app-purchases, and virtual shopping. This way, our app can remain free of charge forever, and will operate without forced advertising, and guarantee maximum data protection at the same time.”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including early access and a high-ranking account for €4, a virtual pet and game extension along with early access for €6, and more. Backers can also pledge €87 for lifetime free extensions.
