If you are not attending our Phoronix Test Suite talk tomorrow or have some extra time this weekend, you can check out the ten minute informational video embedded below of the Linux-based Reside@HOME desktop. Reside@HOME is a product under development by Blue Heron Network is "an innovative communication device that allows families to stay in contact with their aging loved ones and to assist them in staying independent for as long as possible. Reside@HOME can be extremely beneficial in keeping those with early stages of Alzheimer's and other neuro-degenerative conditions at home for as long as possible while maintaining their traditional lifestyle and enhancing the quality of their lives." And it all runs on Linux.

Reside@HOME happens to be another project I have been working on and had developed its Linux server and desktop stacks. An open-source build of the Reside@HOME client will be available once the product is in a state ready for release. Reside@HOME has been in development for many years and I had first talked about this project back in 2007 on Phoronix as Linux for health-care. For those interested in more information, in 2008 I also did an interview with LinuxDevices.com.


As there will surely be some to complain about Flash being used for the video, I did not create this video and it's meant for those with limited computer knowledge and not Phoronix readers. Also pardon the cruddy interface (granted, it's a Linux environment designed for those with Alzheimer's, Dementia, etc) and other areas of the client stack that are still actively being developed.
