Objectwheel (dashboard part 2)

Ok, I’ve managed to define the startup by saying its a dashboard. This is a good start but as I write I keep having to erase what I type in because its getting too complicated.

So here I go again, I will try and define a little more.

Record Driven with a built in database:

Objectwheel is not static information. It’s data driven and dynamic.

Each dashboard you create can have many records attached to it. As you move forward in records you get new content based on what your looking at.

50 contacts could be on page 1-50 of a dashboard

50 Book Titles could be in a List on a dashboard that has only 1 record.

This is obviously how business applications work. So its not really that new. Anybody that understands business apps would understand this.

But here is where it gets more interesting and fun.

A single record could point to Web content stored in multiple places without the need to tell the computer where things are stored.

Lets go back to our book example. And suppose we we were on a book.

While we are viewing this book we could be viewing records on Amazon regarding the price and availability of this book.

We could be seeing other books by the same author.

We could be reading book reviews on various forums about this book.

A book review from a foreign website could be coming up if the Dashboard knew we spoke Russian.

A link to download the audio book could be at our finger tips.

A few youtube videos from the author of this book could be available.

The Linkedin profile, Twitter profile, and Facebook page of this author could be easily available to me.

The website of the author would be easily reached.

And all of this happened without programming.

How you might ask? How did this happen?

Well two things are going on.

First Widgets on the dashboard know what they suppose to do.

And a search engine knows what is on the web.

You combine the power of a search engine with the power of an Objectwheel Widget and you have some amazing results.
