Your console has the power – the GameBook provides everything else! Till now carrying your Playstation 4 or Xbox One was a real hazzle.
This ends now! The GameBook is convenient, portable and lightweight. It´s robustness makes it a charm to just grab it and take it wherever you go.
In fact, you now can utilize your console a lot more, since you now can play when you have time – not just when you are at home.
That's why we created the GameBook - to remove those restrictions and give you the freedom of using your beloved Playstation 4 or Xbox One anytime you want.
What is the GameBook?
At it´s core, the GameBook is a well designed and robust laptop shell that provides two different sizes of a screen, speakers and if you wish an HDMI and USB Interface.
It´s design can be customized to make it a unique piece nobody else in the world has. Just hook up your console, fix the straps and it delivers a full Laptop experience.
Think of it as the ultimate accessory for your console.
Choose your GameBook
The smaller GameBook comes with an 18.4" LCD display at 1080p which is upgradeable to 4K. It´s weight will be around 1,9kg (without console).
The bigger GameBook comes with a 23.8" LCD display at 1080p which is also upgradeable to 4K. It´s 1080p display has 1ms and the 4K display 2ms reaction time. Altogether it will weight about 3,9kg (without console).

Back in 2015, we came up with making a portable console. And as said in the video we right away started with the idea to not just build it for us. Instead we were always focusing on which type of portability concept would fit most of your needs.
We've come a long way! Here are some impressions of our journey.

You upgrade your console every 3-4 years, but how often would you have to buy a GameBook at full price?
The answer is: never again!
Say no more to upgrades at a 100% cost of a new piece. With the GameBook, whenever you get a new console, it's just like getting a huge discount on upgrading your laptop - every time!
These guys can smile :)
Risks and challenges
Building a hardware product inherently has a number of both internal and external risks. We've drastically reduced our production and fulfillment risks by partnering with local service providers to manage our costs, manufacturer oversight, and supply issues. We've lined up shipping, 3PL, and further partners in IT services as well as repair capacities - just in case.
However, there are always risks that are out of our control, including:
Certification delays: Various parts of our product must be tested and approved by various independent agencies. Since we started early in this and Germany has stable certification processes we consider this a low risk.
Unforeseen production delays: Some of you might have seen and heard horror stories about production delays when manufacturing abroad - like we did! That´s why we just don´t do it! Due to the fact we´re assemblying the product in Germany, we expect this to be a low risk as well. We are confident in our ability to deliver this product on time, with great quality.
Since transparency is one of our core principles we will keep all of our backers updated along the way in our Diary "Road to Reality" and we are available for your questions at: email@example.com.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
