Came across the NexDock on IndieGoGo, a laptop styled miniHDMI 14" 1366x768 screen, with Bluetooth 4 Keyboard / Touchpad, 2x USB and a 38Wh battery.  

It also comes with a TF card slot and 3.5mm audio jack; the exact usage of which I've not found yet.

It doesn't appear to have any USB B type ports, so I'm guessing the keyboard / touchpad is BT only and not available via USB.  I assume the audio jack is also BT.  Zero clue how to use the TF slot.

Personally for hobby stuff I was using a Hairer HLT71 which I got on clearance at Target for less than $50. It only has RCAs, and a pretty horrible 7" 416x234 resolution.  Since everything has been going HDMI I've beep keeping my eyes open for a cheap clearance/refurb portable HDMI tv/monitor.

I opted to back it at $99, thinking that a 14" HDMI display would at least cost that much, BT keyboard w/ touchpad, and 10,000mAh battery pack built-in being a bonus.

Thoughts?  Ever seen anything similar?  Anyone interested for their Pine64?

I'm hoping they hit their goals and actually ship.

I am also interested in the Nexdock, but I want the USB Type-C port included.
They have a long way to go to reach that stretch goal.

Here is a excerpt from the comments section for the Indiegogo crowd funding MexDock campaign.
quick question , from your resent update with pine 64 does it mean that i could buy nexdock and pine 64 and i would have a pc up and running that easily? 
Answer  Yes, You can turn Pine64 into a full-blown computer with NexDock.

I like the concept and pledged .  But wished they had provided more technical details.  It looks like people were willing to buy the NexDock when the price was less than $100 but not when it is $119.  Hence it is unlikely NexDock will be funded.

The 2 USB ports provide the functions of a 2 port powered USB hub and access to a micro SD card.

Looks like they got an extension, the time left now is one month.

In a recent update NexDock says one of the uHSB port's rating is 2 amps  and the other USB port's rating is 0,5 amps.
