Ken Madges from Chicago started fundraising at IndieGoGo to design a case with its own screen,
What can he do?
The device is positioned as a way to supportmultitasking: you can display videos, chats and any other information on it, and even play. Also, at any time, you can unfasten the second screen, turning it into a practically separate smartphone.
How is it done?
The cover itself is a pretty powerful chromebook. It is equipped with a processor with a clock frequency of 1.5 GHz, has two USB Type-C ports and a battery that lives roughly like a modern smartphone. Connection to the user's phone is carried out through the special MultiTask + application, which synchronizes via a secure Wi-Fi channel.
The device works with both iOS and Android smartphones. Here is the complete list of supported models:
- iPhone: 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X, XS, XR, Pro11, 11 Pro Max
- Samsung: S7, S8, S8 +, S9, S9 +, S10, S10 +, Note 7, Note 8, Note 9, Note 10, Note 10+
- Pixel: Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3f, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL
- OnePlus: Model 6, 6T 7 Pro, 7T
Ken plans to send the purchased covers in May 2020.
