San Francisco, California - March 22, 2023. In 2016, SHADOW launched their original concept of the PC-in-the-cloud designed for consumers, with a special focus on gamers. Following its initial success, it quickly became clear that SHADOW’s technology had the potential to help a much larger audience, including creatives and professionals, to achieve great things from the cloud, providing greater flexibility needed in a now post-pandemic world.

To better serve the many creatives that have expressed interest in Shadow PCs over the years, today SHADOW is announcing a new product segment: Shadow for Makers. This vertical is dedicated to individuals who need more power to build and create everything they need and want. 

Shadow for Makers allows you to explore the various facets of your talents, including 3D modeling, web development, video production, creating virtual works, and designing a future professional path. With Shadow for Makers, you can choose the Shadow PC configuration to fit your own monthly budget rather than buying a new device every time you need one. Turn any laptop, tablet, phone, or even Mac, into a powerful Windows PC and creative station, and access it from anywhere: simply launch the app and you're good to go.

"Shadow for Makers is a game-changer for those who need the proper power to achieve their creations. With Shadow for Makers, we're empowering individuals to unlock their full potential and achieve great things", said Sébastien Kaiser, Shadow's Chief Strategy & Dev Officer.

Shadow for Makers is now available in North America with two distinct configurations: Spark as well as the power-induced Zenith. Aurora and Lightning are available only in Europe. Here is what the different offers feature:
