About this project
What is the LapPad?
At Innovation Syndicate Inc., we believe mobility is key in our age. Our team all grew up with the classic desktop setup, but we've quickly realized their limitations in an increasingly-mobile world.
We envisioned a future where we are not confined to working in a fixed station — a future that is already happening. Computers are increasingly thinner and more portable, smartphones and tablets are daily parts of our lives and the migration of companies allowing remote-working has become key to better life-management. Your work takes up a huge amount of your time, so it is only fair that you do it on your own terms.
Grab your laptop, tablet, phone and work wherever you want. The LapPad will bring it all together. The best part? You can use them ALL at the same time and for longer, because we've now re-designed it to, not just hold your devices, but charge them too. So play your favorite video game on the couch, work wherever you want or take a movie break in bed. As long as you have a LapPad, the possibilities are endless.
LapPad GO+ — The Portable Workstation With Built-In Charging.
The original LapPad was a success, but our team felt we could deliver an even better experience to our users. We challenged ourselves to innovate and build a product that would redefine what is expected of mobile desks. The result is LapPad GO+ - the first portable workstation with built-in charging.
Still designed and manufactured entirely in Montreal, Canada, the LapPad GO+ is even smaller and lighter than the previous generation, making it extremely portable, while maintaining the rigidity you have come to expect. At merely 0.75’’ thick and less than 3.5 pounds (1.6kg), it is thinner than and lighter than many laptops on the market, meaning you will be able to effortlessly fit it into backpacks and carry-on suitcases. What was already a great travel companion can now be taken on the road even more easily.
Our most significant new feature, however, is the addition of a rechargeable battery. Our team was able to source a battery thin enough to fit inside a much smaller design. Gone are the days of constantly monitoring your battery while at the cafe, of looking for power outlets while travelling on business trips or struggling to make it through university lectures because your devices are quitting on you. Everything required for you to work (or play) is now finally on your lap, as it should be.
LapPad GO+ perfectly embodies our vision of what a mobile work station should be, which is to let you work anywhere you want, as long as you want. Given all these features, the LapPad GO+ might just be the only desk you will need, because your desk is now also your power.

Risks and challenges
We've done our best to make the LapPad GO+ more functional than what is currently on the market. Using and abusing existing similar products has been key to see how design should appropriately follow to increase usability and user experience.
Our local team have worked hard to overcome issues with quality control, refining the production process and ensuring we can give you the best experience.
Due to recent issues with Samsung batteries, we have encountered problems with our shipments going through customs while delivering overseas. We are currently working through the regulations to make sure we can put LapPad GO+ into the hands of as many people as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
