Many people who use a smartphone for entertainment during commutes face a nagging choice when they get home: do you continuing watching or listening to something on your phone, or do you go through the trouble to transfer it to your home computer? Superscreen is a kickstarter solution for this first world problem. A 10-inch touchscreen tablet, the Superscreen uses its own wireless solution to connect to an Android or iOS device up to 100 feet away. Once connected, you'll be able to use the 10-inch Superscreen as a mirror of your own device (only larger). Without worrying about transferring files or additional licenses, you'll be able to access everything on the host device in real-time.
The Superscreen has a 2560 x 1660 pixel display, 5 and 2MP cameras, and charges its 6000 mAh battery through a USB 3.1 Type-C port. Though it doesn't seem to be a standalone tablet, it does actually have a 2 GHz quad-core CPU, 4GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. According to their website, the Superscreen stays "securely connected to your device at all times", and will mirror the host device at the touch of a button. It will not use Wi-Fi or data to transfer between the devices, but instead a "private signal", which the kickerstarters have not elaborated on. They have promised that it will have zero latency, however.
The Kickstarter costs US$99 to back, but the final product is expected to cost US$299 when it launches in December. That price seems a bit steep (as you could buy another tablet for that price) but it might be worth it for those who don't want to worry about synchronizing data or maintenance of more than one device.
