▪ The computing power available to the consumers is wasted

  ▪ Computers are not used at all times

  ▪ Even when computers are used, consumers only use a fraction of the computing power available to them

▪ Technologies no longer used lead to a huge electronic waste problem

  ▪ Old phones/laptops we never use stack up in our closets

  ▪ When they do get thrown out, they are transported to a dump leading to massive electronic waste

    ▪ Electronic component waste leaks into water and the surroundings, polluting the environment

Picture of Electronic Waste


▪ Stream desktops to consumers from servers

  ▪ When their desktop isn't used, we can allocate those resources to someone who needs it

  ▪ Share processing power with many different people

  ▪ Gives people exactly how much computing power they need for what they want to do

  ▪ No longer have to upgrade hardware as technology gets older/slower, just ask for more processing power when needed

  ▪ Stream the desktop to existing products consumers already have like their phone which connects to their monitor/mouse/keyboard

Desktop-as-a-Service example

Future Plan

▪ Learn how current low-latency streaming services like Google Stadia and this open-source cloud gaming service work

▪ Create a mock-up of a desktop streaming service
