While Apple is preparing to start selling smart watches , which are essentially useless without having a smartphone in your pocket, Neptune decided to develop a completely opposite project. What would you say about such a watch, without which your smartphone would be useless? And it was exactly this that became the central idea of Neptune Suite – a set of gadgets, the “brain” and the starting point of which are smart watches.
The company Neptune is not the first time put forward such crazy ideas. At the end of 2013, the designers and engineers of the company presented the world with smart watches the size of a deck of cards. Can you imagine such a thing? A healthy such bar on your wrist. But no one will complain about a too small screen. But this time the gadgets of Neptune promise to be more elegant and thoughtful.
Neptune Suite is not just a smart clock, but a whole set of six gadgets, which are closely related ecosystems. Smart watches are at the head of the table, since they are the brain of the given organism. The diagonal of the screen of these waterproof watches is 2.4 inches, they have a 3G / LTE modem working with nanoSIM-card, and it works all under Android 5.0 Lollipop. Also, the watch is equipped with the ability to transfer data to other devices in the vicinity, using the ultra-fast 802.11ad WiGig wireless protocol.
Now imagine that you have some kind of smartphone, which in fact is not a smartphone. It works wirelessly, relying on your smart watch. This idea is what the Neptune engineers offer us. Complete with the clock, you get a smartphone and a tablet, which at any second can start to receive data from your watch wirelessly. Also, additional devices will be a wireless keyboard that turns the tablet into a laptop, HDMI-dongle, with which you can display images and videos on any TV, as well as wireless headphones, which are also analogous to the charger.
The basic idea of Neptune Suite is that you can jump instantly from one device to another depending on the tasks assigned to you. The cost of external smartphone and tablet is much lower than similar gadgets, since, in fact, these are just external screens without the presence of any additional expensive modules. Yes, and they charge the battery for this much longer.
The entire set of Neptune Suite of six gadgets will cost the first buyers in the amount of $ 599. At the moment, you can support the project onkraudfanding-site Indiegogo. It should be noted that people liked this idea, and the creators of the Neptune Suite already collected almost eight times more funds than originally planned (more than 785,000 dollars instead of 100,000). After the set goes on sale, its price will rise to 899 dollars.
