    Get in Early > XCruiser Flash Widget

      Hello World:
      Our company is about to launch around mid-May a breakthrough publishing and browsing platform, based on a patented UI technology, called XCruiser.

      XCruiser is a rich Internet application (RIA) written in C# that runs on top of the Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 and DirectX. Our business model is SaaS, and we’re targeting the creative market, storefronts and Consumer Generated Media. [And yes it's also about Flash]

      XCruiser is a new way to create and navigate rich content. Users will be able to publish to the Internet PhotoStreams, WebStreams and ShoppStreams.

      XCruiser is a highly visual technology and as is common with visual technology, words can only do so much in conveying what it does, how it works, and its hypnotic experience.

      What we can tell you in a public forum:

      • Users can navigate in parallel through 3D content channels, at rates that reach 120 to 200 images per minute, unbeknownst to users. It’s very comfortable and very fast. Of course, users can cruise leisurely at a slower rate if they wish.

      • Users can cruise through different categories or even content sources simultaneously.

      • The net result of its publishing and navigation abilities is that it effectively offers the first Desktop “Media Search Engine Builder” and “Live Presentation” platform. Add media search and in-site search technology to the picture.

      What’s the Project:

      We need to get a Flash based widget out the door quickly after our launch date. The Flash widget needs to match the “cruising experience” of the RIA client. The Flash widget does not need to offer editing, creating and publishing capability, so it will be limited to XCruiser 1.0’s navigation features.

      We believe XCruiser has a bright future ahead. The Flash widget obviously plays a strategic role as it offers viral exposure and lets some of our SMB customers syndicate their XCruiser streams on web pages or even social networks (Facebook/MySpace etc). Unlike a lot of get rich quick start-up schemes, we ‘re in it for the long run and are patent protected. This is important because if you invest your time, you know that the company’s technologies cannot be duplicated by copycats.

      Our technology was endorsed as a foundation platform by Dan Lynch, a big fish in Silicon Valley who was one of the instrumental key figures during the days of DARPANET along with Vint Cerf, Doug Englebart and Alan Kay (mouse and GUI inventors respectively). Because it’s a foundation platform, XCruiser can deliver many applications.

      What’s In It For You:

      You’d be coming in pretty early in the game and this is a short time span development project of 90 days.

      This is a great opportunity for a talented developer to take a generous equity position in a start-up for very little work time. The candidate does not need to commit 1 or 2 years of his/her life. Plus, this is very interesting work and once you see it you’ll understand that this technology will quickly become visible, even more so with the Flash widget. You also stand to enhance your reputation significantly. Ideally, we’d rather you continue working with us over the long term but that’s entirely up to you. The primary objective is to get the Flash widget out the door.

      What Are We Looking For:

      A Creative minded Web Developer who knows Java Script/Flash and Flash 3D and also has experience with XML. You anticipate being free for the next 4 or 6 months.

      Technical Skills:
      o Determined Flash problem-solver
      o 1 year or > Flash ActionScript 2.0, XML, Javascript, and AJAX
      o XML with CSS experience
      Flash integration with back-end technologies (ASP, Cold Fusion), experience with Flashremoting helpful
      Strong design sense, proficient with CS (Creative Suite) Web Development Suite
      o Familiarity JavaScript/DOM Scripting
      o Web services

      Great, What’s Next:
