Smartslate / mobile drawing computer system


The one-way bendable construction, the flexible protection layer and the removable handle make SYX exceedingly transportable. The modular hardware configuration is comprehensible, since the hardware plugins are linked into the supply structure. This contains the storage-batteries, the foil circuits and the interactive oled display. Actuators change the display surface, enable tactile feedback and thus more natural and more effective work.
HELIX offers a slip-proof alternative to a pen. Its tips can be switched dynamically, the touchstrip allows zooming. The battery charger is integrated into the transportation bag from air-permeable 3D-mesh.
