Hexapad seeks funding for affordable and developer-friendly wall tablets (Wablets) that will help any organization streamline their workflow and engage their audience

NEW YORK and SOLKAN, Slovenia, June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- We have been experimenting with interactive kiosks in public places for a decade now, but they have mostly failed to deliver on their promise. They take up valuable space, are costly and expensive to run, custom app development is very limited and create vendor dependency. The time has come for large wall mounted tablets (e.g. Wablets) to enter our daily lives.

Hexapad - The Wall Tablet

The Hexapad team developed a product that is affordable and makes it easy for every developer to create engaging touch screen solutions tailored for casual standing use. The Hexapad is a 23" Android powered wall mounted tablet, which will help any organization to streamline their workflows or simply to engage their audience. Priced like a standard brand name tablet, the Hexapad is an affordable alternative to costly touch screen PC technology.

The Hexapad features a bright 23" touch screen display and is powered by a modern Android based system. At the core of the system there is a HTML/CSS/Javascript based development environment, which allows any web developer to create amazing touch screen apps and to share them through the central App Store or keep them private for their customers. The Hexapad connects to existing WI-FI networks or for added security it can use a standard network cable. A very durable polymer material called Kerrock® is used for the front of the device – it is very tough, easy to clean, scratch and water resistant while still preserving a captivating design. The Hexapad also comes with a VESA wall mount system, so it can easily replace existing touch screen devices. The back plate is made of heavy-duty stainless steel, which provides extra protection in public locations. All the electronics are sourced from reputable suppliers and are industrial standard rated.

Digital agencies can benefit by introducing new products and services to their customers. By leveraging on their customers base, they can expend their portfolio of services by providing custom app development together with the Hexapad hardware.

The Hexapad is suitable for several use cases:

  • Inside organizations to create engagement within teams of employees
  • In public places like waiting rooms, hospitals, tourist spots, museums etc.
  • In retail shops to boost sales and product promotion
  • In tourist agencies, hotels, restaurants to provide additional services to customers
  • And thousands of different more scenarios

The Hexapad team is now gathering pledges on Kickstarter. The goal is to reach $150,000 in pre orders that will be used to start a small-scale production. Individuals and companies are welcome to pledge, but they also have options for resellers and exclusive partnerships with digital agencies.
