Projects

In 2009, the idea arose to run Windows operating system on Nokia N95 smartphone. We were surprised by the interest from news media around the world and positive feedbacks about this project (“In what may well go down as the most awesome – and pointless – hack in smartphone history” – BitTech). That’s why in 2012 we founded FirstEver website, the place for our future projects.

From mid-2013, we became really interested in cryptocurrency and started building first servers for Scrypt-based cryptocurrencies. Then, we started building servers to mine Ethereum cryptocurrency, many of these servers are in operation until this day and continue to make a profit despite an increase in electricity charges.

In 2014, we created a start-up called shareVR, a software that allows you to use your smartphone as a screen for virtual reality (VR) goggles and play PC games. We were the first to play titles such as ARMA 3, Alien IsolatedCrysis 2 Maximum Edition and Project CARS in VR. In addition, we have designed and built the first VR goggles with built-in cooling system comprising two mini fans. This solved the problem with foggy headset lens issues. Only after 3 years, another company created a similar device.

 

In the next project, we went back to the roots and were the first to run Windows 7 on my Android smartphone using x86 virtualization on ARM.

This time we decided to build the best backlight system for PC monitors in the world. The project called MEGA Light with 400 RGB LEDs was completed in 2018 and to this day no better device has emerged. The device has 400 RGB LEDs and very high responsiveness.

During the cryptocurrency boom, FirstEver was a leading supplier of components for Ethereum servers in Europe, such as PCI-E 1x to 16x Powered USB risers and other types of adapters.

In the years 2019-2021, Marcin worked in a large international corporation (RPA), so there was no enough time for other projects.

We’re thrilled to announce that in 2022 we released the first product under our brand – FirstEver 4-Port USB-C 10Gbps Gaming Hub. It is the smallest (43g / 1.5oz) USB-C 10Gbps hub on the market and has illuminated USB ports. It is currently on sale in the UK and the EU. Please check our official Shop, or Amazon and eBay.
