The biggest news this week is the sporty new edge server and router coming from Unseen. Here’s what it will do:
Anti-blocking, this will form the basis of the trusted nodes on our network and allow our users to get around firewalls, including a few big ones (we hope)
Digital currency wallet node distribution
Content delivery network – receive and distribute content privately
Personal firewall to keep bad things out and your things from leaving
Remote management (if you want to have us do this)
P2P functions like email, your own private network, etc. (many of these are future features, but many have been tested)
Most of this box will be open source (running Ubuntu)
We’ve got the first 100 routers in house and they are now being tested. We’re going to make some of these available for free to qualified Unseen users, but we’ll need some information from you first, the normal retail on something like this is about $400, so go complete the survey if you’d like to help with this and have a chance to get one for free:

Lifetime Unseen is still available. As we complete the last upgrades to become completely premium, we’re still in beta and this is the best time to get a lifetime account. This will be the last time you’ll need to pay us for basic service in the future, if you’ve got lifetime.

The Edge Server Details and Specs (photos)
We think you’ll be pleased with everything our team is putting into this server. Yes, it’s not just a router, it’s also an X86 Ubuntu server! Placed at the edge of the network in your home, office or data center, we’ll be able to provide a lot of functionality you can’t get any other way; anti-blocking, extra protection from bad guys and a lot more.
The parts all come from Switzerland – PC Engines: it’s possible to get the parts and DIY just download the code for free and install it yourself, too, in a few weeks.
We’ve got the first 100 routers in house going through QA now, One of our engineers did a beautiful job with the logo on the shell. The aluminum metallic blue is just spectacular.
Each router has an X86 based processor, here some of them are, stacked up, prior to going through testing:
After testing, they are carefully placed on a rack:
Here is a view of the ports on the back, (left to right) antenna, power, 2 x USB 2.0 (3.0?), 3 x 1 Gb ethernet, RS-232 serial, antenna :
Each router has the following:
3 x 1 GBit ethernet
2 x USB 2.0 (the boot shows USB 3.0 but the original mfr specs were for USB 2.0)
Serial port (9 pin)
1 x 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi (2.4 or 5 GHz, but not both at same time)
AMD G series T40E, 1 GHz dual Bobcat core with 64 bit support, 32K data + 32K instruction + 512K L2 cache per core
4 GByte DDR3-1066 DRAM
64 GByte SSD
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
You can use this like a router, it will include management software like the routers at computer shops, however that’s only a very small part of the capabilities of this device, it’s quite powerful and will play a key role with our network. If you have any questions, you can send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those of you who have extra hardware and the ability to manage things, we’ll be providing the source, .deb files and installation scripts so you can BYO hardware. Downloads will be free.
As always, thank you very much for your support.
