Poort Technologies Inc. is a small industrial design firm manufacturing advanced iPad Hubs (tablet enclosures). The company has designed and produces enclosures for tablets such as the iPad and Microsoft Surface Go that can upgrade the hundreds of millions of those tablets in existence, to become fixed, smart appliances.
5G Streaming Terminals High Speed, low latency applications for either iOS or Windows 10 can be deployed over kitchen counters, and workplaces as base stations - for all web, messaging, and video (Netflix etc.) streaming content. These Poorts (alone) maintain an independent Web, for YouTube etc. as free services using just 10W over WiFi.
Development is Complete The company has two completed and proven plastic injection moulds, made of premium, long-life carbon steel, with a standard interface for use in any facility. Now in contracted production in Richmond (Steveston) BC. Poort's ownership need only to order production runs, and can operate the business turnkey from any location in the world.
Production Cost and Distribution Cost per kit is ~$30 CAN and sells for $59 USD. Amazon, Shopify, Etsy accounts display and remit revenue for all transactions in North America, requiring only intermittent bulk stocking, or direct dealer sales. The firm is already profitable on Amazon, although Poort is newly listed there and no marketing has yet been initiated.
Design Features and Advantages The unique Poort enclosure features an open back, which allows it to cover a counter-top electrical outlet completely. This hides the charging cable(s) entirely, and permits the device to then hang from two screws. right in tile grout if necessary, for simple, non-destructive mounting; even over ceramic back splashes. A Poort uses no counter space, stays out of the way and is easy to keep clean. It can be dismounted and is portable to anywhere in seconds, by simply lifting it off its mounting screw(s). It can also be securely fastened via its flat blackplate.

300 Million iPads Installed Base Note that Poorts complement the Apple HomePods, Amazon's Echo/Alexa or any smart speaker, because the onboard iPad brings Web video streaming and applications that so-called 'smart displays' cannot offer, yet utilizes that great smart speaker sound.
