Research into Human/Computer Interfaces has revealed that a hierarchical organization of data is not optimal for memory retrieval tasks. On the other hand, the human brain has evolved to excel with spatial modeling tasks

RoomYak is a fun, slightly addictive and viral (much like twitter®) alternative to securing and sharing unstructured data in a three dimensional environment of interconnected rooms. RoomYak allows its users to move through 3D space to organize their data and projects within a set of rooms which they decorate. Conventional files attach to the walls and 3D models sit on the floor. User data is protected by next-generation file security technology but the owner can elect to share data on a room-by-room basis with friends and colleagues. Each user can create as many rooms as they wish. RoomYak transforms the daily chore of data back-up into creative expression and social interaction.
"Research into Human/Computer Interfaces has revealed that a hierarchical organization of data is not optimal for memory retrieval tasks. On the other hand, the human brain has evolved to excel with spatial modeling tasks," said Tom Chalker, inventor of RoomYak and President and CTO of dataSentinel™. "That's why it is easier to find the paper copy of your tax returns in your file cabinet than the same file on your computer. We offer a more natural view of your data."
RoomYak is built upon the dataSentinel™ storage solution, an enterprise services platform that protects sensitive, unstructured data files from disastrous theft, loss or leak. dataSentinel™ provides state-of-the-art security with its new architecture, patent-pending encryption algorithms and triple-redundancy storage techniques.
RoomYak lets you design your own 3D rooms where you can:
- Decorate - customize the look of your simple RoomYak 3D Environments with color, virtual furniture and art
- Stash your Stuff - simply drag and drop all you unstructured files from your local file system onto your RoomYak walls to securely and portably store a lifetime of personal and business files: pictures, audio, video, documents, presentations, spreadsheets and more
- Share your Stuff - put your Friends on a wall and use IM to schmooze and create
- Shop and Sell - visit public rooms to buy and sell data and merchandise
Navigate naturally through your data arranged in 3D space. RoomYak offers a mixture of social networking and extremely simplified file storage. Securely store you confidential project files for your eyes only in one room; have you team share documents, pictures and spreadsheets in another; create a branded company room to engage customers in another room; and sell your boat with pictures, specs, movies and sound in another creatively decorated room. You can also visit the interconnected rooms of your friends and colleagues.
