Hello! My name is Austin Van Vark (middle right in the picture above). I am currently a senior at Singapore American School. Last year, my friends and I desperately wanted to play "Windows Only" games on our Macs. It seemed like everything was coming out for Windows only. Eventually, we saved up and built our own Windows machines. However, I still felt dissatisfied. Thats is when I decided to create Malum Asino. 

Malum Asino is a device that simply connects to your mac via thunderbolt cable. It is designed to operate as simply as possible. All you have to do is plug it in, restart your computer holding the option key, and then Windows7 OS will load up. This gives even the most common uses access to anything Windows based, all on their private Apple computer! 

Unlike other options, such as Parallels (Virtual Machine), or Bootcamp, Malum Asino takes up  absolutely no hard drive space on your computer. It also gives Windows complete hardware access, meaning gaming is possible. Mac OS and Windows OS both have their own pros and cons, why not just have both? 

The reason I need your money for my project is because patenting, manufacturing, and packaging fees are all becoming very expensive. With your help, Malum Asino can become a reality on store shelves. We also need investments because of upgrade opportunities. We plan to shrink the size of our device (hopefully to flash drive size), while at the same time making it faster. Malum Asino has big plans in its future, but your assistance is absolutely crucial. 

Help us get this product to everyone who needs it. If you aren't interested in our project, but find it awesome like we do, please share it with others. We really need you. Thank you very much!
