TechStars Karma device rewards your good deed
Life is all about what you’ve done in your previous life. Or so does the Indian idea of ‘Karma’ sound like, when explained in basic tongue. Yet, this doesn’t just extend to spiritualism and soul-searching. It goes beyond and afar, as far as the tech space as well. Just why Techstars alum has baptized their device as ‘Karma’. What you sow is what you reap in this scenario, literal Basically a ‘social hotspot’, the device that rewards you with free data when you share your Wi-Fi connection with strangers. Karma puts it simply as “a simple and honest mobile provider.” As per this thinking, folks could simply carry the device into a Wi-Fi dense zone and end up enjoying free data should the demand spike up to really high. Here’s how it works: On connecting to your hotspot for the first time, the device’s network takes on your name and refuses to be password protected. When a stranger connects to your Karma device, you’ll both earn 100 MB of free data.
The Karma concept was demoed in New York and raised $1 million. The device costs $79.
