Ubiquitous computing aims to make computing widely available, easy to use, and completely transparent to the user. Umbilical Cord is intended to be the first step in researching ubiquitous computing at CSUSB. It implements a model scalable network with a client-server architecture that features consistent user interaction and global access to user data. It is based on the Linux operating system which can be leveraged for future research due to the open nature of its source code. It also features a scalable network swap.
