Ockel Sirius B: the powerful Windows 10 Pocket PC

€49,307

185

The most complete Windows 10 PC that fits into your pocket

We’re excited to introduce the Ockel Sirius B and the Ockel Sirius B Black Cherry: Windows 10 PC’s as powerful as a desktop and as portable and light as a smartphone.

 

   6 reasons to support this campaign

  • Because our pocket PC’s are powered by the world’s number one operating system: Windows 10 (but versions without operating system are also available).  
  • Because each device is the size of a smartphone and weighs less than an apple.
  • Because our pocket PC’s have an eye-catching design.  
  • Because we equipped the devices with Intel technology, HDMI, Bluetooth, Wifi, 2 USB ports, a micro SD card slot, audio and microphone connection and Flash storage.
  • Because our pocket PC’s are 100% silent due to their fan-free design. 
  • Because you won't have to wait long for your Ockel Sirius B or Black Cherry to arrive if we reach our funding goal. The (white) Ockel Sirius B is already in stock and we’re almost ready for the production of the Ockel Sirius B Black Cherry.

What other Ockel fans say about this project

Why we started this Kickstarter campaign

In November 2015, we launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for our Pocket PC. Within 24 hours our funding goal was reached and so far we raised more than 410.000 euros / 450.000 dollars.

These funds have been used for the first production run and the development of the Black Cherry version of our pocket PC. We hope to raise at least another 45.000 euros here on Kickstarter. With your support we will be able to further finance the development, production and marketing of our pocket PC’s.  

A closer look at our pocket PC's

 Eye-cathing design

You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but at Ockel we are passionate about good design so we want our products to look stunning. That’s why our pocket PC’s have an attractive white or black housing with aluminium edges.

Seriously small

Our pocket PC’s easily fit into your pocket or bag. With a size close to the latest Apple and Samsung smartphones you hardly realize you’re carrying a complete computer with you. You can use the Ockel Sirius B and the Ockel Sirius B Black Cherry wherever you want. Just connect an HDMI screen, the power adapter and optionally a mouse and/or keyboard and you are ready to go!

Light as an... apple

We know that no one likes to carry around heavy stuff. That’s why the Ockel Sirius B weighs only 120 grams (or 4.23 ounces) and the Ockel Sirius B Black Cherry 153 grams (or 5.40 ounces). This is less than the iPhone 6 Plus!

Connectivity matters

Our pocket PC’s are equipped with two USB ports, an HDMI port, a Micro SD-card slot and a 3.5mm audio and microphone jack. That means you can connect a keyboard, mouse, speaker or any other external device within the blink of an eye.

The USB ports of the Ockel Sirius B are both USB 2.0. The Black Cherry version includes one USB 2.0 port and one USB 3.0 port, enabling you to transfer data up to 10 times faster.

No strings attached  

Do you prefer to enjoy our pocket PC without any cables? No problem, the Wifi and Bluetooth chips will do the job. With the powerful Bluetooth 4.0 chip you are able to connect any Bluetooth device and fast Wifi takes care of everything else. Surf the web or watch an online video without any frustration. It’s time to say goodbye to video buffering on Netflix or Youtube!  

The Sirius B is equipped with a Wifi a/b/g/n chip. Those of you looking for even faster Wifi can get their hands on the Sirius B Black Cherry, which includes an ultrafast Wifi AC chip.

When space is what you need  

Need more space? We’ve got you covered. Extend the built-in flash storage with a Micro SD-card, or connect your own HDD using one of the two USB-ports.  

The Sirius B and the Sirius B Black Cherry have an easy to reach Micro SD-card slot, which supports Micro SD-cards up to 128GB. That’s the equivalent of 42500+ songs, 64000 images or 985 minutes of video!* For your convenience we’ve added rewards that include a 64GB Micro SD-card.  

*(Average file size: 3mb for a song; 2mb for an image; 130mb 1 minute of HD-video recording)

Millions of applications. At your fingertips!  

Whether it’s Netflix, Twitter, Flipboard or Dropbox: our pocket PC’s handle it all. The millions of applications at the Windows 10 Appstore will give you the control (or fun) you are looking for.

The Sirius B and Sirius B Black Cherry run on Windows 10 Home. We offer you rewards for both our Pocket PC’s with the popular Microsoft operating system pre-installed. Would you prefer to do the job yourself? Get one of our 'NO OS’ (No operating system) rewards for a lower price, so you can install the operating system of your preference.

100% silent  

We designed our pocket PC’s in such a way that ventilation fans are no longer required. This unique feature combined with flash storage means you can enjoy working in silence and benefit from ultra-low power consumption.

One of the challenges we faced when developing the Black Cherry version of our pocket PC was the design of a complete new passive heat sink. As the Black Cherry has more powerful hardware components, the device also generates more heat. A regular passive heat sink isn’t able to cool this extra heat. As Ockel brand is built around everything that can be found in space – our brand name itself refers to the last name of famous Dutch astronaut Wubbo Ockels – we decided to create an eye-catching heat sink with the pattern of the Canis Major star constellation. This is the star constellation where the Sirius B star can be found, the most well-known white dwarf star in our universe.

 

Plug & Play  

Enjoy your content on any HDMI screen in three easy steps.  

Step 1: Connect the Ockel Pocket PC to an HDMI cable and connect the cable to a screen.  

Step 2: Connect the power cable to the Ockel Pocket PC and to a power outlet.

 Step 3: Start working or playing.

Intel’s Rocket Science  

Intel engines power our Pocket PC’s. The Sirius B is equipped with an Intel Atom Z3735F processor. The more powerful Sirius B Black Cherry includes an Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor.

Compare the two versions 

Small, but great for everyone  

We believe our pocket PC’s are great for many people. Freelancers, keynote speakers, students, business owners, teachers travelers and Netflix lovers, they fit basically everyone.  

Campaign timeline  

The rewards  

We understand everyone is different. That's why we try to be as flexible as possible. We offer rewards with the operating system Windows 10 pre-installed, but also without for those who prefer to install Windows 10 or a different operating system themselves. Please note that the Sirius B (white) only supports a 32BIT OS. The Sirius B Black Cherry also supports 64BIT OS. Please take into account that if you choose a reward without an operating system and you choose to install for example Linux, support will be limited. As Linux is an open source operating system, support will be limited to the drivers provided by the Linux community. Anyone who needs some extra storage space is invited to choose a perk with a 64GB Micro SD-card. 

Please note: The reward amounts are based on the currency rate of 21-07-2016. Your final contribution may slightly differ from the initial pledged amount because of currency fluctuations.

We’re Ockel, it's great to meet you!  

You can’t accomplish the best results on your own. That’s why our team is made up of a bunch of technology addicts, geeks, marketeers and design wizards. With a combined experience of about 60 years in the gadget, computer and industrial sectors, we’re more than ready to make a success of Ockel and our pocket PC's

The Team  

Why we started Ockel  

The trend that everything is or should be portable, the fact that everyone is connected 24/7 and the tremendous amount of media we consume motivated us to create Ockel. We are a team of Dutch technology addicts all working at Avanca. Avanca was founded in 2008 in the living room of our project member Tim in a small Dutch town called Voorburg and is now the fastest growing hardware company in the EMEA-region.  

Being part of Avanca gives us many advantages. We gained the experience and skills needed to launch Ockel and have access to many of the essential resources such as a warehouse, customer service and a network of top engineers and suppliers, but at the same time have a great amount of freedom and flexibility to innovate. We are passionate about building bridges between innovations and consumers and that’s why we launched this project on Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges

As with any hardware project, there are some risks and challenges. We've done our best in minimizing the risks for our backers.

All our prototypes are finished and tested extensively. The Ockel Sirius B is completely finished and in stock. The Ockel Sirius B Black Cherry is almost ready for the first production run.

The Ockel team has a combined experience of 60 years in the manufacturing world, and we are confident that we can meet the timelines mentioned in our project. However, unexpected delays can occur due to manufacturing issues, component shortages, and possibly more. We'll do our best to be as transparent as possible and keep you informed about any issues as they may arise.

We have also set up a support section on our website. Please visit: www.ockelproducts.com/support for drivers, downloads, solutions and more.
