We at Livi Design have seen awesome accessories for a lot of phones, but no Smartphone manufacturer has had the courage to make an accessory that doesn’t lock it’s customers into buying their specific products forever for support and additional income.
The Casetop by Livi Design is an innovative evolution of the laptop but features some very exciting new ideas!
Any Android*, iPhone, or Blackberry 10 becomes a laptop with 3x the battery life & when you run out, you have a full phone!

The Casetop is compatible with any Smartphone that has a video out option and bluetooth. That’s right, any. From Apple to HTC, Blackberry 10 to Samsung.
We have a full list available at phones.casetop.ca and will keep it updated as we see new phones coming out, but don’t wait for us to confirm it. As the only requirement one of several types of video out sources and bluetooth, don’t be scared to buy something not on our list, we guarantee it.
Sustainable & Environmentally Focused
Finally a product that tries to last as LONG as possible. How about ten years?
The Casetop will be supported by new phones for a minimum of ten years from point of sale by using standardized ports such as HDMI, MHL and MicroUSB.
We are also working on making the plastic bits on the Casetop out of environmentally friendly plastics, and this is one area where we will be focusing concluding the Kickstarter campaign.
Easily repairable and mod-able. If you break a part of your Casetop, you can either order the part from us or send us your Casetop. Since the Casetop is very easy to work on, we’ll simply charge the cost of the part plus $10 for installation.
High Quality but Inexpensive
You can have your cake and eat it too. As the Casetop does not have all the expensive parts that a traditional laptop would have, we have a lot of room to get the best fit, finish and parts!
Glass covered LED LCD Display, full-size island-style keyboard. Think Apple, ASUS, Sony, this won’t be netbook quality. No large and complex motherboard, no RAM, no difficult heat management. Just a beautiful screen, wonderful Polycarbonate and a huge battery.
High Design, Custom Flavor
High Design: The Casetop has evolved out from the parents of the Unibody Macbook from Apple and the White Polycarbonate Macbook.
We like the White, but love the single piece construction. The Casetop takes this feature of the unibody Macbook to the Polycarbonate world, the entire keyboard area is constructed from one inject-molded piece of Polycarbonate.
Custom Flavor: The Casetop body itself is a pearl white while the frontbar comes in 7 different colors for Kickstarter backers to choose from. While the Casetop right now comes in white, we will be producing a black one at a later date, and it might be possible to offer this to Kickstarter backers in a survey later on (depending on volume).
