Of course, it is interesting to see a second Screen on your smartphone. Just like Microsoft’s Surface Duo and LG’s G8x ThinQ.
You can get the LG device (available for purchase) – however, the surface Duo is yet to be launched next year.
Even though you have the option to get a full-fledged smartphone with a second screen, what if you can easily add another screen to your existing iOS or Android device?
A phone case (CastAway) spotted in an Indiegogo campaign could make that happen. In case you’re curious, Indiegogo is a place to organize a crowdfunding campaign while promising what the device can do.
They have a prototype ready – however, they aim to reach a $50,000 fundraising goal in order to get started with the production for consumers. They will be using an app on the smartphone to communicate with the case via Bluetooth/WiFi.
You can see the prototype in action here (it is not the finished product):
It acts just like a phone case but also features a second screen with it. In addition to the screen, it is worth noting that it will be powered by ChromeOS.
It will also feature a separate battery and a headphone jack – so it is more than just a normal phone case. If it goes into production after reaching its fundraising goal, it should be the first accessory with ChromeOS for any smartphone.
