The Dragonfly Futurefön is Either a Complete Mess or the First Everything Device

By Gary Cutlack on at

The Dragonfly Futurefön has obliterated its Indiegogo funding target, with $166k (£105k) currently in the kitty waiting to fund the folding and detachable device that claims to offer the best of an ultrabook, phone and tablet in one unit.

Although it's not just one unit. The Futurefön wants to be three things in one, a transforming piece of kit that includes two 7-inch displays, a full-size keyboard that folds in half and a pop-out touchpad with the option of a stylus, and... there's Windows on one half and Android on the other smartphone/tablet side.

It all comes apart, swivels and folds up, the big idea being you can unify your stuff with just one data plan. Here, to help it make a slight bit of sense, is a diagram of it all:


And it has optional interchangeable covers with LED notifications if it's not complicated enough by default. Sounds and looks utterly bonkers and could be a heavy old mess of hinges, batteries and connections, but with $166k in the bag and two weeks of money-taking to go, it looks like being one of Indiegogo's biggest winners regardless.
