Tras un poco de lío por los reclamos de si sacarían la web o no, hay una pequeña nueva actualización.
I am quite puzzled by the amount of complaints for the lack of a website. We do have one that is pretty much done (not the one on jinnlabs.wordpress.com) but we’re creating animated infographics that explain how the processor works differently from all other processors (ternary, async and distributed computing). The creation of said infographics was more of a challenge than expected, due to the problem of communicating high tech to a graphics artist which then has to communicate it through visuals. That is the main reason for the delay of the website.
We’ve been open about the entie process of what is going on in Jinn from day 1, we do post the relevant updates on what we’re doing and we have explained since day 1 that this is a long term project. Also take into consideration that our resources were halfed by the heavy crash late 2014. This is why we could not justify spending time or money on things like websites. Being frugal is key to succeeding. And also, like I have mentioned quite a few times: we did not WANT to go live and ‘officially public’ with our project until we were further along, otherwise it might prompt anyone with more resources than us (think EVERY single semiconductor on the face of the planet) to replicate our project, leading to a 100% loss.
Currently we’re a lot closer to a position where we’re more and more comfortable with ‘going public’ since we’re further along.
We got a new engineer on board that is working on trinary to binary conversion for USB, so that the ternary CPU can communicate with the external hardware world (which is universally binary in 2015).
Compiler is close to being done
Processor is coming along nicely
The foundation for the distributed computing is being hashed out, we hired Nxts very own mtchl (PhD in Math) to help with those formulas.
Our goal now is to make the world first modern ternary computer, we’ll do this in a Raspberry Pi fashion as the first official product, which will be followed up with a Internet-of-Things System-on-Chip for product developers.
