Combots – a new revolutionary way of communication?
September 1, 2006
Yes a little bit offtopic, but a very interesting story about a new heavily funded German Web 2.0 company that just launched its new product. According to it’s founders Combots.com is a revolutionary service for personal digital online communication.
“Using intuitive Drag & Drop operation, a top-design straight forward user interface, hiding the all powerful technology under the surface, ComBOTS brings back fun into communication through permanent and private one to one connections to friends and family.Each of these connections is represented by a high quality 3Dcharacter with animated emotions that make icons, smilies or greetingcards look outdated.”
According to different sources it is possible to send up to 500 MB files with guaranteed delivery. It also supports free phone calls, rich media exchange, photos, voice and file messages.
I am not sure what is so revolutionary about this product, but Euro 450 Million Dollar in free assets, a 3 year development and more than 50 patents, indicate that this is an interesting new product that could rock the phone and IM market.
