Dragonfly Futurefön is Trying Combine 3 Devices Into One
In the modern era, we need devices that are an all-in-one solution. Devices which can handle our communications, business etc., and are convenient to use. To meet our daily needs, we have mobile laptops, smart phones and tablets. Frankly, to this day I have a hard time figuring out the difference between a smartphone and a tablet. Except from the fact that the screen is bigger.
Anyways, among the plethora of new inventions we come across on the a daily basis, comes Dragonfly Futurefön. It’s a laptop, it’s a smartphone and it’s a tablet. Yes! Dragonfly Futurefön is a three-in-one device, which combines these three devices to create one.
The design is a bit strange but the concept seems interesting enough. Futurefön does so many right things the wrong way. First, I don’t understand the odd design of two screens attached to a keyboard. They could have just used one screen and added feature which splits the view. I guess that would have been a cheaper option as well.
The idea behind this type of design is that you can boot two different operating systems, at once. The right screen can be detached and consumers can use it as a tablet as well. That’s not all to it, the tablet can be used as a phone too.
The creators are referring to the phone feature as “Slingshot.” Why? I have no idea. The device will come in two versions, one will only run Android. While the other version will run both Android and Windows OS at the same time. Windows will run on the Slingshot screen of the device.
In a time where slim or thin devices are the norm, Dragonfly Futurefön is a massive device. Both of the screens are 7 inches in size, so it won’t be an easy task to carry it around.
Dragonfly Futurefön is trying to raise money through IndieGOGO. There goal is to raise $10,000 and users looking to pick up the device will be happy to know that the goal has been achieved. They have raised more than $508,000 so far.
Dragonfly Futurefön will cost you $300 for the Android version and $400 for the the dual OS version. The idea is certainly intriguing, however, the design can use some improvements though. All in all, this device has a lot of potential and deserve to be in the lime-light.
We’ll surely be keeping a keen eye on this one.
