Superscreen, a display that turns any iOS and Android smartphone into a 10.1? Full HD tablet, is now close to being the top 10 most funded Technology campaign in Kickstarter history, offering ownership of the Superscreen for 60% off the expected retail price of $299.

Santa Monica, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/18/2017 -- Transcendent Designs, creators of Superscreen, are in the final hours of their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for the Superscreen, world's first portable touch screen for your smartphone. With nearly 18,000 people supporting the project, it has now has more ~$2,500,000 committed.

"The Superscreen could be to tablets what the invention of the smartphone was for MP3 players," says tech influencer, Adryenn Ashley. "It has the potential to render them obsolete."

The Superscreen provides full control of smartphones on a 4x larger and better, full HD 10.1? display. Superscreen connects directly to a user's phone via a secure, private connection - no file transfers, no clouds, no wires, no contracts.

The Superscreen has already garnered press in SlashGear, Pocket Lint, PhoneArena, CultOfMac, AndroidAuthority and on Jon Rettinger's TechnoBuffalo.

Forget about syncing cloud storage over Wi-Fi. Take a picture on your camping trip with your iPhone 7 camera, then immediately pull out your Superscreen to edit the photo on a larger HD display - all without any syncing, because the image never left your phone.

How it works in 3 easy steps:

1. Users download the iOS or Android apps on their smartphone
2. They sync it to the Superscreen via a secure wireless connection
3. With no delay, Superscreen mirrors what they see on their screen, on a 4x bigger display
