According to TreeHugger report, the shell, called Superbook by Andromium, makes any Android smartphone output look like a desktop environment.

Andromium launched this ambitious product on Kickstarter — a website “designed to bring creative projects to life” — and is available at $99. Developed by Andrew Jiang and his team at Andromium, the Superbook provides a large screen, keyboard and multi-touch trackpad, more than eight hours of battery and phone-charging capabilities.

When plugged into Android smartphone , it launches an app to deliver the full laptop experience. According to Andrew, the app is essentially Android Continuum that lets you work seamlessly — going from phone to notebook.

“With the Superbook, you can do everything you can do on a laptop – and more. With desktop -class browsing, access to office applications, games, and even programming, the opportunities are limitless,” Andromium said in its project description on Kickstarter.
