Would this be able to get around the laptop electronics ban on flights

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ocke … esign--2#/

It's the size of a large smartphone with a 6" display but has full PC functionality.

There are also usb stick sized computers out there that you can just hook up an external keyboard/mouse/monitor...

Haven't had any experiences with flights that have electronics ban, anybody know what they specifically look for?

I don't think you will be able to fly with a keyboard in your carry-on luggage. At least on BA, it counts as "large electronics"

We were told nothing bigger than an iPhone 6, so even a large smart phone would be banned. There was also a specific ban on external keyboards and other accessories of that type.
