Have you ever wished you could check those email attachments from a laptop instead of your Smartphone? Or perhaps you wished you could edit that document with a full keyboard rather than a small touchscreen. With Superbook, you can.
Superbook is a universal laptop dock that uses the speed and power of your Smartphone and marries it with the display and tactile nature of a laptop. By plugging your phone into this ‘skeleton’ laptop, you can use your Smartphone’s capabilities to transform it into a full functioning laptop. These capabilities would encompass, but are not limited to, cell data, Wifi connectivity, bluetooth functionality, and file sharing.
The cost of the SuperBook is $99. This could provide a innovative avenue for schools, boards, and/or districts. Every student is in possession of a Smartphone; by putting a collection of Superbooks in classrooms, schools could be combatting the issues of technological inequity, the cost of classroom technology, and wireless infrastructures.
The pitch video can be found on their Kickstarter page: The Superbook – Turn your Smartphone into a Laptop
