spo-comm & Prodam – A saddle fast solution “ SQ-Lab“

ProDaM® was founded in 1994 as a software company. In 2008 Björn Müller joined the company and – next to ProDaM® – Product data Management – also ProDaM® – NetServices was founded. The latter deals with the development of individual software solutions, IT solutions and services round about Linux.

Task

The software solution of ProDaM® is an interactive bicycle saddle that measures ones body and analyses the body part. As a base a system without moving parts was needed, that stays invisible behind a TFT display as well as on the electricity bill. The main criteria were a very good hardware support for Linux, a long-term availability and a good collaboration to the manufacturer.

Product / solution

The most fitting system is the WINDBOX II. The passively cooled processor, the 19mm flat and high-quality metal housing and a 16GB SSD quickly convinced the development department at ProDaM®. With only 17 Watt power consumption also the running costs after the purchase stay low. The spo-comm hardware together with the ProDaM® software – Java Swing based on Debian 6.0 - are the complete solution.  

With the results from the analysis, the perfect article can be offered via a product finder. The ordering system is connected with this product finder. Like that, the proper saddle can easily be ordered after a little configuration.

Conclusion 

The innovative solution for SQ-Lab brings a new twist to the bicycle store. Every bicycle fan now has the chance to easily find the fitting saddle, and there is also the possibility to adjust the saddle individually. An offer, that until now, only pro-athletes could do. Already 120 sports stores are equipped with the system and throughout receive positive feedback.

[description] =>

As the new mini PC still impresses with its included Intel Atom Technology on the cutting edge, it now has amongst the common DVI interface another one for monitors – on which pictures and videos are shown razor-sharp in full HD.

Further highlights of the powerful device are the unlimited usage of 64 bit operating systems or the expanded working memory: up to 4 GB RAM in comparison to 2 GB RAM of the earlier model. The power consumption is also worth mentioning: At highest performance level the device only needs about 19 watt – thanks to the very powerful but extremly economic combination of a powerful graphics processor and a very energy saving processor. In regards to external influences the Plus model impresses with a strong performance, too: It smoothly operates at temperatures of 0 °C up to 40°C and even an air humidity up to 90 % can't stop its capability.

spo-book WINDBOXII Plus is available for spo-comm partners exclusively at the mid of April 2012, all others can buy it at the mid of May. Of course, the predecessor – spo-book WINDBOXII – is still available. Thanks to same size and design WINDBOXII Plus can replace the previous model easily and quickly without any effort for users.
