The occupation of “inventor” sounds like what kids say they want to be when they grow up, with few following through as adults. But Brent Morgan is one of those elusive grown-up inventors. He’s simultaneously prolific and up-and-coming, with 49 patents for his research and engineering across aero-space, renewable energy, and health technology. Brent is a lifelong entrepreneur having successfully commercialized 5 major product lines from start-up stage, with zero failures in bringing a design to market Now Morgan is turning his attention to revolutionizing the mobile space.
His latest project is the world’s first portable touch screen for your smartphone: the Superscreen. The premise of the device is simple: provide full control of your smartphone on a larger, better display. Superscreen connects directly to your phone via a secure private connection. So it does not require the cloud, and you do not need to connect to Wi-Fi.
In fact, Morgan promotes that in minutes you will start exploring apps and tasks that you would never consider doing on your small mobile screen: activities like shopping, watching movies, and editing photos. “I can see with this thing, that’s what I’m talking about,” a rapper comments on Youtube about viewing his lyrics on the larger display. “I could really see myself watching T.V, showing friends pictures, having a good time,” another user notes during the product’s launch at CES 2017.
The features of a $600 iPad in a $99 device. Superscreen gives you the benefits of a tablet with the power & convenience of your phone.
The immediate question with Superscreen is if you’re so keen to have a larger display, why not just purchase a tablet? Morgan loves answering this question, “Everything about Superscreen has been designed to help you get the most out of your smartphone experience, not to add another upgradeable-device or feature to your life.” He insists that it’s “not just a bigger screen, but a better one”. For people whose lives are contained within their smartphone, the easier functionality of a larger screen combined with not needing to re-download all of their apps, pictures, notes and bookmarks is appealing.
Superscreen is a new way to experience the digital world you have set-up on your phone. According to Morgan, it does everything a tablet can do, everything a casting product can do, PLUS everything in your phone in one affordable great looking device
Superscreen could fall prey to being caught up in its own slickness, but given its straightforward principles and its wide user cases (basically all smartphone users)—it doesn’t. We’ll see if the market agrees with the concept and $99 price point. Follow Superscreen on Kickstarter to find out.
