Welcome to MEA!
Mise en abyme (French pronunciation: [miz‿ɑ̃n‿abim]; also mise en abîme) is a French term derived from heraldry, and literally means "placed into abyss".
It's a technique in which an image contains a smaller copy of itself, in a sequence appearing to recur infinitely.
MEA is the cloud of personal computers.
Imagine a virtual cloud desktop streamed over the Internet on bring-your-own device!
Unlike other cloud services, with MEA you host not only your files, but computing power and the operating system.
Further, MEA is a state-of-the-art Web 3.0 application labelled Software-as-Hardware.
Heraldic Clouds website hosts virtual desktops, both for personal use and shared/free. This service is aimed at geeks, college students, futurists, travelers, Internet enthusiasts, gamers, and dreamers.
If you are not afraid to try the latest trends in computer industry, if you see the world a bright and more advanced place in the future, then MEA is your next favorite app! It's not every day you find a system that paves the way for Internet Revolution and changes the very way we use computers.
What is 'Mise En Abyme'?
Mise En Abyme, or Droste Effect, is the visual experience of standing between two mirrors, then seeing as a result an infinite reproduction of one's image. Mise En Abyme is both science and art.
Like other Mise En Abymes, MEA Cloud is a computer within a computer.

Is my government going to spy on my MEA cloud computer?
MEA as a proxy is a solution against Internet censorship, such as the US SOPA act, Russia's Runet and the Great Firewall of China.
What OS will my MEA cloud desktop use?
meaOS. The operating system made exclusively for the MEA Cloud.
Is MEA a secure app?
Mise En Abyme is more secure than on your physical computer! Our job is to make it next to impossible for anyone to make your MEA computer insecure, yourself included if you intentionally or unintentionally try to compromise security. Even the risk of downloading viruses is minimized - even if you don't know how to tell a difference between a safe and a malicious link on the Internet, MEA got you covered.
One computer, many devices.
Personal computers are no longer hardware in 2016. Like the Industrial Revolution before, Cloudization is a natural next step in human history. An era when your computer is everywhere and nowhere at the same time. This era starts with a morning. You wake up, connect to MEA from your smartphone to listen your custom playlist on your way to work/campus. Do you work from a MEA-powered tablet as your friends amaze at your results. For an ideal movie night simply connect to MEA from something with a large screen and go to sleep after you begin a large game download from a Chromebook so that you may play it the following day on a zero-client.
Does MEA have a smartphone app?
Turn your smartphone into a client device for a powerful computer system that enhances your device with a secondary operating system and cloud hardware.
If you're using iOS the best way to access MEA is through Safari (or any other web browser).

Fiber optic Internet
Included with a MEA cloud computer you are getting an average of 600 Mb/s up and down Internet speed. Fiber optic Internet is an underused technology that provides connections ten times faster that common DSL high-speed Internet. Only a few cities have fiber optic Internet service.
With MEA subscription you'll get fiber optic Internet at a fraction of what fiber optic Internet providers charge.
Is MEA Environmentally Friendly?
MEA is green tech. No old hardware, wires, mercury, radioactive, biohazard, toxic, smelly or otherwise dangerous materials to dispose of.
As hardware and the Internet are merging together, the dawn of Web 3.0 is inevitably coming. A semantic web is only one side of the next version of the Internet, MEA is another key modification that makes it possible to blend hardware, operating system, graphics and TCP/IP.
Let’s explore some imperfections of traditional physical PCs that lie on the user’s desk.
- They demand periodic maintenance, cleaning, dusting, cooling;
- They can be stolen, or left at home or even lost if it’s a laptop;
- The average user’s PC is always at a security risk if they are connected to the Internet, whether it’s a virus threat or an open port for hackers to abuse.
The solution is the computer in the cloud, the next step in the evolution of computers. The microcomputers of the 1970-1980 were inseparable from their software, the PCs overcame this limit but still are inseparable from their physical presence. Cloud computers of Mise En Abyme are designed to correct this problem.
MEA is the next step in Evolution of computers since microcomputers, and the missing link between the computer on your desk and a computer in your head, as humanity merges with technology a little more every day.
meaOS is an operating system that powers MEA Cloud Computers. It's Linux distro born on Heraldic's workstations. Built to adapt to the use in the cloud, it's a bleeding edge software available exclusively to the users of MEA. When building meaOS Heraldic used its vision of a modern, post-Windows 10 operating system. Cloudization meant heavy use of remote connection, graphic but lightweight interface and additional security measures.
Heraldic learnt the successes and mistakes of past desktop operating systems, so the following features have set the foundation of meaOS:
- Based on the world's most secure OS family - Linux
- App market and GUI programs wrapped inside an awesome modern desktop environment
- Simplified updates
- Open source
- Free as in 'Freedom of speech' and free as in 'free beer'
- Thousands of native Linux apps in addition to Windows compatibility layer WINE
- Advanced networking
- Heavy use of VPN to connect your client device peripherals
- Language Packs
- meaOS comes with your language and a feature of easy switching between OS translations
When humanity connected to the Internet we've exposed ourselves to viruses, cyberattacks and malware. When you're on MEA you are protected by 256-bit SSL encryption, freshly patched operating system (Linux based!), a VPN tunnel and a number of secret measures that are sure to surprise any hacker. MEA security is just as strong as online banking and even stronger. In short, MEA is more secure than anything else you connect to the Internet.
Heraldic is committed to supporting a free and open Internet. MEA network is the easiest solution to escape despotic Internet regulations.
MEA uses VPN communication, but unlike VPN services with MEA every link you click, every file you download is performed on the Proxy. That means that if you live in Russia or China your Internet activities physically happen beyond the borders of your government's surveillance. Keep in mind, though, connecting to MEA is like travelling to another country. When in Rome, do as Romans do. Check the legislation of the country where your cloud computer server is located.
