Members of the team of Microsoft Research have brought on the UbiComp 2018 conference to Singapore a so-called cover of Alcantara. The device has e-Ink the display and 5 buttons, one of which allows to do screenshots, even if on the smartphone the screen is switched off. The cover from the smartphone battery (by the way, demonstration was conducted on Lumia 640) eats, but data transmission between them is carried out by means of Bluetooth.
