Hype Labs is announcing the pre-beta release of their revolutionary connectivity tech. Any mobile device can now create the strongest possible connection with all its resources, all at once. No more data blackouts. No more wifi routers pushed to breaking point by a crowd. No more reliance on a centralized system. A new era of connectivity is here.

Carlos Lei Santos, Founder of Hype Labs, has this to say: "All we're doing is removing the needless restrictions that our devices have. With our framework, any device can create its own network." Carlos and his co-founder Andre Francisco met in the University of Porto. One of their first apps allowed users to message each other with or without the internet. They took their creation to a tech event that happened to be plagued with internet blackouts. Their app could have kept attendees connected, but people didn't want another messaging app. They wanted the same tech for their own projects. That's when Hype Labs was born. The idea was simple. Give every app on the planet the opportunity to have these same next-generation connectivity powers.

The applications are far broader than messaging. The first company to take up the mantle was TopDox, who created a file sharing platform that works equally well with any file format from any storage source. Two or more colleagues can work on the same document without any internet connection, of course. The second company to apply Hype Labs’ tech was ezConferences. They built the perfect solution to internet strain so common at events. Every new attendee that downloads this app makes the connection stronger for everyone else. It sounds like magic, but it’s just algorithms.

Imagine if this indestructible connectivity was the standard way that all apps operated. Other companies have invented similar tech before, but they kept it to themselves. It seems much too powerful to give away. Hype Labs exists because Carlos and Andre realized that this is the future. With every data piece encryptable, and all devices and OSs compatible, there's no downside. It’s happening, one way or another.

Recently Hype Labs entered a fast track program at Hub:Raum, Krakow. They made it to the final stage alongside CTF365, a gamified security training platform, and Wikey, designers of wireless hard drives. They’re now in conversation with Hub:Raum’s parent company, Deutsche Telekom, to integrate these unshackled connectivity abilities with normal phone usage. It won’t be long now before it’s in all our phones as standard!

About Hype Labs: Dedicated to developers, Hype Labs builds tools to help install these next level connection abilities into new or existing apps. They believe in connectivity as a human right, and find it baffling that we still use such fragile means to connect our devices. Learn how you can unleash your app at HypeLabs.io.
