How do we get our devices to communicate with each other? How do we govern our universe of content? How do we transform our handhelds into controllers that send our chosen media to our desired output device? Sookbox has answered these questions, creating a new paradigm. Enjoy your media on any device. Access content, whether stored media on your Sookbox or content from the cloud. It is cross-platform, allowing you to use any mobile device or computer to control your media. Your personal cloud.
We have developed an entirely new framework to control and access media - based on a server model. The current paradigm is a linear path: a controller commands a particular device which sends a signal to a particular output. The Sookbox is an actual server that communicates via multi-direcional feedback with numerous control devices, and sends signals to multiple outputs - all at the same time.
In 2005, Dave Sukoff conceived the core concept of the Sookbox framework. In 2010, building a new house, he became serious about solving the problem. An MIT alum, he sought out and recruited a team of 5 MIT developers to build the initial prototype. As the concept was proven, 3 of the 5 decided to pursue Sookbox full time. Dave runs the company, the other founders continue to develop and innovate. We are a tight group - sharing a keen desire to solve problems and build something great.
Why we're doing this
We have a passion to build our dream computer, and solve a key technology problem of the day: a universal solution to media connectivity and control. We believe that media should be served from a server. We are a group of some of the best developers in the world. Prototypes and betas have been tested by various customers. Our unique, paradigm shifting, insight is in the manner in which media content is accessed. We separate content from control and create a personal cloud.
Most impressive accomplishment
Dave Sukoff won back to back national computer programming championships in the early 90s. He shifted focus to the finance world where he developed term structure models, and eventually founded a hedge fund that grew to nearly $500mm in assets. Cyrus Vafadari wrote “Observation of Long-Range Near-Side Angular Correlations in Hadronic Interactions”. Mathew Peterson developed models of how quantum fluctuations at 10^-37 seconds appear in the structure of the universe today.
