The goal for Famo.us is development of rich interactive experiences, and only a few schools, companies, and developers have had access to it thus far. "We want people to build their businesses on it," Fetterman said.
To monetize the technology, Famo.us plans to launch an as-yet-unnamed wrapper service, which works the same way as PhoneGap, Jeanne Feldkamp, vice president of marketing at Famo.us, said. Apps could be built in Famo.us, wrapped, and submitted to an app store, with developers able to leverage native phone functionality like accelerometers, maps, and address books.
