Chicago, IL – September 18, 2009

A patent for a wall-mountable computer has recently been granted to Originatic LLC of Chicago, Illinois.

The uniqueness of the computer, sold as the “Smart-Leaf,” relates to its wall-mountable design and integrated, fold-out keyboard. The Smart-Leaf can be mounted to the wall for convenient computer access, and it can be used on a desktop with its integrated, fold-down desktop stand.

Originatic launched its Smart-Leaf computer in March 2009. Since then, the company has sold the Smart-Leaf to customers in three countries.

According to Reno Smith, Originatic’s General Manager, “We see a strong, global demand for the Smart-Leaf, especially as companies look for more ways to increase customer satisfaction and operational efficiencies. Because of its durable design, the Smart-Leaf serves as a kiosk – one that occupies no floor space, is easy to use, and is quite affordable in the kiosk market.”

When asked about the consumer market, Mr. Smith said that the Smart-Leaf will not replace the desktop or laptop. In the larger households, he said, “The Smart-Leaf will serve as a central computer hub, accessible to all family members for easy online access and PC access.”

The base model starts at $1,982. Depending upon the options, the Smart-Leaf features a touch screen, webcam, TV tuner, WIFI, scratch resistance, splash-proofing, keyboard lock, and power lock, all packaged in a compact form with a slim profile.

The new patent, U.S. Patent No. 7,589,958, was issued on September 15, 2009 and is entitled “Mountable Electronic Device Having an Input Device.” It strengthens Originatic’s patent portfolio, which currently includes 7 issued patents, 2 allowed patent applications, and 17 pending patent applications in 12 countries, including the World Intellectual Property Organization.
