Today, the popslate doesn’t come from kicksarter, but from indiegogo, which is almost the same thing, except it’s not as known. It’s called the popslate, and the idea is to add a low-resolution E-ink screen at the back of your Iphone 5. according to the company, “That means it’s low-power, always-on, super-readable in direct sunlight, and totally customizable”. What will I use it for, you might ask ? With the popslate app, you can send any picture you take or from your library on your popslate. Or you can display text, like a training program, in order not to uses the battery and the glowing screen, Or you enven use it to display a map, or the weather, or other information, via the popslate app. What is great is that they are planning on publishing an API, which would allow third-party applications, like games, rss viewers, fitness applications, running applications, music applications, all sport apps will benefit from this innovating Iphone case. The main downside is the absence of touchscreen, which is compensated by the gyroscope: you can double tap the popslate screen with two finger to change page, for exemple.
Here is the video you can find on indiegogo:
If only I had an Iphone 5, I would definitely think about buying it, as it only costs 99$, if you pledge now on indiegogo (I know that’s a weird name). The project is ending soon.
