Don't have a laptop? Try the virtual computer !

You have heard of desktops and laptops, but now two engineering students in Kerala India have come up with a virtual computer that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. All it needs is an internet connection. K Ansar and PP Ismail, final year computer science students at an engineering college in Vatakara, about 45 km from here, the prototype of a virtual computer in which you can store all your important documents, favourite music, colourful pictures and even videos.
The idea is that no one needs to carry a laptop or pen drive around. You can upload any files to the website and access it from any corner of the world. What you need is just an interface to access the internet. The open source platform for creating a virtual computer is available on the internet. Open source platforms are available free for any kind of project.They are trying to convert this into a mobile application. When 3G services become operational in the country we think the virtual computer will really be an attractive proposition.
