Smartphone case adds second screen to the back of your phone.
An IndieGogo campaign has launched to bring a prototype E-Ink smartphone case into mass production. ‘popSLATE’ features an always on E-Ink screen which can be customized to show pictures or information on the back of an iPhone 5.


The popSLATE case includes the latest, ruggedized, E-Ink screen, so it protects your iPhone just like any ‘dumb’ case. In fact the screen is nearly indestructible.
The screen only uses power when the image changes so it sips negligible power from the phone. We use the lightning connector for both power and data exchange.  For shortcut navigation, we’re also integrating a tactile interface based upon the phone’s accelerometer. Double tap the back of your phone to cycle through images or accept Pops from your friends.
Then there’s popSLATE app on the iPhone side.  You can take pictures with the camera, browse the image gallery, manage your library, connect with other users, send/receive images and messages, and Pop what you want, when you want it.



I love the idea of ‘popping’ a map or a shopping list onto the outside of my iPhone case.
