Hey +Scott Blomfield, not yet. We have a solution made up but we're focussing on the core experience first. Rest assured that the first gen won't be less of a product though with features that we release in the future.

Hey everyone! We just uploaded a video about where Livi Design is at right now with the #Casetop, please check it out if you like. We'll be getting better equipment when we can, but updates will be in this style going forward. 

Please email us questions that you would like answered and we'll throw them into new videos too!

Sincerely,

John Andrus
Founder, Livi Design

#Casetop  goes pre-order!

Hey Everyone, 

You can now preorder the Casetop! As we have been working towards outside investment, we feel like we are ready to accept pre-orders on our website! Much like Kickstarter, we need to reach a goal, unlike Kickstarter; we can supplement the goal with outside investments and show you guys where we're at! Backers have special links that are in the other updates, but the main link for your friends and family is this! 

livi-design.ca/store
casetop.ca/store

You can send them to the main site, as there is a lot of links for it on the main page!

Thank you guys for all of your support and this is simply the next step on our goal towards production!

Please let us know what you think!

This is amazing, does the phone slide in? That would be cool and make it look more like a real laptop.
This is a great product, real innovation at work, I am definitely going to buy.

New Article about the Casetop, it's very good! Thanks @Melfass!
A self-proclaimed nerd by trade, John Andrus, Founder of Livi Design, is turning ordinary smartphones into laptops with the launch of the Casetop. After the iPhone debuted, Andrus knew that smartphones were going to become a disruptive technology. So why not do more to harness the devices power? After asking this question, he sat down and started designing his idea.

Livi Design is taking the #Casetop to Banff Canada for the Banff Venture Forum! Its an excellent opportunity to raise the capital we need to fund our first production run. Hopefully we find some like minded people!

Hey Timothy,
I just noticed that part of the queue behavior is annoying for setting up playlists for a car. I was wondering if you could make a add to queue button on the left of each song, or even just have an option to make that the default behavior? And, if the queue was empty it would make a new empty queue, and play the song? You could make it an optional behavior...that would make this app perfect for car trips. Passengers get to pick the music. :-)
 
The next update's shaping up to be a big one. It will also be awesome.

"...what Shuttleworth said toward the end of this video that I found most compelling, and I think what he speaks about in general can be considered in a platform-agnostic form as being very prescient about the future state of mobile and desktop computing."
"Instead of carrying three devices — a smartphone, tablet, and laptop, all of which would have discrete storage and memory, and would have to be independently managed — the user would just carry the smartphone and have attachable modules, such as a tablet screen, a large high-definition display, a detachable keyboard and wireless human interface devices that the smartphone would plug into or communicate with."

Lovely food, it was very tasty and awesome. Also, the place looked good, although they didn't have a drink menu and the menu looks very old. The food though was so great.

Oil covered workers LEANED on my extremely rare car, so I said. Get off my car, and they looked at me, so I said it again. Why? They asked. I said GET OFF. What the hell, etc. I don't care about what car it is, why the crap do you lean on a car??? If I wanted damage to the 25 year old paint, I'll go back to Lube City.

Awesome service, very knowledgeable, gave me coffee and a newspaper. Everything was perfect and they didn't try to sell me stupid upsells like Lube City. Also, they treated my car with respect, also unlike Lube City.
