Thought cloud computing was limited to boring old businesses and IT firms? Think again. A new start-up called OTOY plans to use the technology to deliver HD video and graphic-intensive games to any device– including the iPhone. The video above shows Crysis running on an iPad.
The service is slated for launch in the next few months. How it works is pretty simple. Rather than process a video game or movie client-side, OTOY will use the cloud for all the power-intensive work and sends everything over the web to the client.
If successful, this will revolutionize mobile computing. According to OTOY, you’ll soon be able to turn your cell phone into a gaming rig all thanks to cloud computing.
