Kangaroo’s modular laptop computer named winner of annual product design award
PORTLAND, Ore., April 12, 2017 — InFocus Corporation is pleased to announce that Kangaroo Notebook has won a Red Dot Design Award in the Product Design category. Kangaroo Notebook is a modular laptop PC offered as a packaged bundle of two interchangeable Kangaroo Mini PCs running Windows 10 and a lightweight laptop dock.
Since entering the market in 2015, Kangaroo has delivered mobile computing solutions that revolutionize the way consumers use PCs. By creating new and innovative form factors for Windows 10 computing, Kangaroo delivers a seamless PC experience and brings expandable and affordable solutions to consumers. Most recently, the brand has expanded the Kangaroo computing line with the launch of the award-winning Kangaroo Notebook.
Kangaroo Notebook follows the same modular architecture as the rest of the Kangaroo product line while including the features of a standard laptop. Kangaroo Notebook comes with two Windows 10 CPUs and a laptop dock to house them in, allowing the user to swap them out for two completely different computing experiences. Kangaroo Notebook’s bundle is a unique solution for users of all ages and for a variety of use cases. From parents who want to offer each child a separate computer to those looking to keep their work module separate from their personal module, Kangaroo Notebook is an affordable companion device suiting many lifestyles.
Kangaroo was recently awarded the iF Design Award for both the Kangaroo Notebook and Kangaroo Pro, a mobile computer loaded with Windows 10 offering VGA, HDMI and Ethernet connectivity as well as various ports and a 2.5 inch hard drive bay. The award, presented by Germany’s oldest independent design organization, recognizes the impact the Kangaroo PC line has had on mobile computing.
“The Kangaroo ecosystem provides consumers with the power to choose a PC that best fits their lifestyles,” said Ben Chu, director of Kangaroo product marketing. “The recognition of the Red Dot Award is an honor and further justification of the importance of evolving the mobile PC experience to keep up with changes in consumers’ needs. We have been addressing this need since our inception and will continue to look for new opportunities to offer unique PC products to the market.”
The annual award is presented by the Red Dot Award, headquartered in Essen, Germany and organized by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen. Since 1955, the group has recognized leaders in the field of design across three disciplines: Product Design, Communication Design and Design Concept. Kangaroo Notebook will be on display in the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany along with other Product Design award winners where visitors have the opportunity to test and use most of the award-winning products.
Kangaroo Notebook is available on Amazon, Newegg, and InFocus Direct. To learn more about Kangaroo, please visit www.kangaroo.cc.
