GREELEY - LUCAN Technologies Inc. announced it has kicked off an Indiegogo campaign for their LUCAN Companion PC aimed at reducing electronic waste of existing PCs.

The campaign can be viewed at http://igg.me/at/LUCANPC. The company said it hopes to raise $500K to bring the product to market.

LUCAN said its primary goal is to develop a technology that can slow down the rate of PCs becoming e-waste. The company said it is working on a new modular PC architecture that is based on evolution and convergence of hardware and software.

LUCAN said the design extends the life of PCs by introducing touch capabilities in an innovative design.

"We wanted to give consumers a clear alternative to replacing or dumping their devices prematurely," said Murat Erdogan, LUCAN's founder and CEO.

"But that had to be done with a unique but familiar device, hence our Desktop Tablet PC form factor."

The Companion PC can be used as a PC with a monitor, an input device by replacing the keyboard and mouse of a PC, or a Tablet PC, the company said.

When combined with Windows 8, the product will reduce e-waste by introducing touch capabilities and other features to PCs and extend their use for many years, LUCAN said.
