Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) - Inside the old post office on Tower Avenue, two floors up from Kestral aircraft, you'll find the beginnings of a revolutionary cloud-storage company hoping to break barriers.

We're the first in the world to do this," said Coy Christmas, the CTO of Fasetto.

Christmas and his London-based partner Luke Malpass are behind the company "Fasetto" and their app "PDQ" or Pretty Darn Quick.

Using a network developed from the ground up, PDQ bypasses cloud storage and allows users to send files from one phone directly to the other.

"Fasetto has the ability to share information between all devices, instantaneously so you're not bounded by manufacture or device or any type of other limitation," said Christmas.

Even more unique, the app also allows users to securely share files and stay in touch all while offline.

Christmas showed us how the app can send and receive a picture using their own network called "Arch."

All of this excitement doesn't come without its fair share of skepticism. Many are asking how it's possible to transfer files when there's no internet connection.

Christmas says their network uses radio waves to share files, which also carries some concern in going forward with the product.

He says their product falls in the gray area of FCC regulations.

"My only concern is that all of a sudden the government is going to go, it's too cool man, but I have to ground that bad boy."

That Bad boy, however, is quickly gaining interest among companies and potential investors in Silicon Valley.

"We're not the smartest people in the world, we thought of something cool, that's how it grows. We'll get more input from other people thinking of things, and we'll continue to grow, and grow and grow," Christmas said.

The company has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to hire 30 people and get the company going early next year.
