Superscreen mirrors your smartphone on a 10.1-inch FHD touchscreen display [Sticky or Not?]

    Isn’t this just a Palm Foleo without the keyboard?

    My BS-O-METER is pinging…
    I love the idea, but pushing HD+ over BT is questionable. Then there problems like Netflix’ security measures that are designed to keep it from being copied.
    Why not just use casting or airplay?

    Then there are the promises of touchID and Apple Pencil support? Both used totally closed protocols on the hardware side AFAIK.

    I’m staying far away from this one.

      Soo… not sticky? lol. It’s interesting, but for sure there are some flaws.

    • Spencer Navarra-Chew

      Yeah, that’s my opinion. I have serious doubts about the quality of this thing. Also the lead seems to have zero experience in this market space and I don’t see any evidence of their ‘propietary’ technology.
      It basically just seems to be a simple mirroring device with a touchscreen. Probably worth the $99 Kickstarter price but definitely not worth the $300 retail.

    Lag will be an issue. Even over usb3 or widi the lag makes mirroring near unusable.

    • Spencer Navarra-Chew

      Yeah, it says wireless… and iPhone don’t support WiDi…

      My point was even with peer to peer or usb otg, mirror sucks. So I can’t see how this will somehow be magically better.

      In my experience, Chromecast hooked up to my TV lags a little bit, but it’s far from unusable for casual use — photos and videos.

      Try and interact with it, the lag will drive you nuts. It’s fine for showing others as you say photos or videos. Try playing a game or even browsing on it. I’ve tried a usb3 displaylink adapter and even it wasn’t a good experience, the difference between it and mhl was night and day.

      It would be very hard not to have ANY latency issues when projecting something wirelessly. I found browsing to be okay when I used it briefly. I have a comptestick hooked up to my TVs so I don’t do much browsing that way.

      Craptons of lag in their demo videos, and that’s only scrolling webpages.

    This seems like the perfect addition to a car that doesn’t have android auto. You’d need a mount and power connection, though. If it’ll play netflix too, it’d be amazing.

    • Spencer Navarra-Chew

      Yeah, seems like a good use!

    Interesting! I backed something similar on Kickstarter called the “Superbook” by Sentio (formerly Andromium), and that is more like a laptop, with a keyboard. Would have been interested in this if I didn’t do it with the Superbook.

    • Spencer Navarra-Chew

      The big difference is that the superbook acts as a dock using USB-OTG. This thing is supposed to use magic wireless tech. Superbook is a better bet.
