Andromium Superbook will be a second display for both Windows and Macs
The Kickstarter campaign for the Andromium Superbook was a success with more than 16,000 supporters contributing almost $3 million USD total to develop a notebook shell that can not only double as a second display for Windows tablets and notebooks, but can also be used as a second larger display for a connected Android smartphone.
The Superbook connects to a Windows machine (like a Microsoft Surface Pro tablet) or PC stick via USB to operate as a second display as demonstrated by the video below. Mac users would also be able to connect seamlessly as well and, in the case of tablets and iPads, the keyboard and touchpad of the Superbook will work as inputs for the connected devices.
Multiple SKUs of the Superbook will be made available as the Kickstarter was able to meet its suggested stretch goals. This includes the $99 USD base model and a second SKU costing about $55 USD more with a 1080p panel, backlight keyboard, and additional USB port. Additional keyboard layouts for international consumers are also down the pipeline.
