I have been enthusiastic about the 13.3" ultra-light flexible E Ink Mobius based e-readers since I filmed the Sony DPT-S1 in January 2014 here: http://armdevices.net/2014/01/19/e-ink-booth-tour-at-ces-2014-sony-dpt-s1-smartwatches-wall-clocks-and-more/ and from Netronix in January 2015 and in June 2015. The folks at Goodereader are teaming up with a supplier to get the 13.3" E-reader available to Indiegogo backers for about $699 a piece at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/13-3-inch-android-e-reader/x/585198#/ I believe that the 13.3" E Ink E-reader form factor can be totally awesome, especially if real-time multi-user collaborative apps become very user friendly on this user interface.
Crowdfunded at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nexdock-the-world-s-most-affordable-laptop--2/x/585198#/ NexDock used ARMdevices.net's $500 Shenzhen Sourcing service and probably a lot of the ideas that I have been posting on this blog since before 2012 before launching the idea on Indiegogo. NexDock is an Empty Laptop 14" concept, with HDMI input to use the Empty laptop's display from any device with HDMI output, then with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to then control that same device as long as it has Bluetooth support. The device can be any Smartphone with MHL, Slimport, USB Type-C MHL or DisplayPort output, it can be any HDMI Stick, Development boards can also work. The Empty Lapdop Dock can also charge any device using one of its USB charging ports, I guess with 2A power output.
Now available for $137 at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/riley-your-smart-and-mobile-companion/x/585198#/ the retail price will be $229 and distributors can buy it at $78 for 1 thousand pieces minimum order. It moves around quite smoothly and fastly, works on carpets too, can climb over small obstacles, it can get back up if it fall over on its side. They have nice app features such as taking pictures, video, night-vision, "wake up on movement", go back to charger home. They might add more functions like room mapping/memory, follow function, "automatic roaming security guard" and more.
