With Shadow, Blade provides an answer to the future of PC

Blade develops the future of PC: Shadow.

Shadow is a super powerful computer (running Windows 10) which is accessible from anywhere and anytime. Thanks to the apps and the Shadow Box, Shadow is compatible with any platform: smartphones, tablets, computers, Mac and even Android TVs! Any device connected to the Internet becomes a powerful station for gaming or working. With Shadow, say goodbye to obsolescence.

No need to change your computer every 4 years anymore, Shadow components (software and hardware) are updated over time in our fully secured data centers.

OUR STORY

A family, a project and our secret island!

Blade was born in 2016 with one ambition: to create the PC of the future and free it from its constraints. Indeed, in a world where devices become smaller everyday but with quickly outdated performances, Shadow always delivers more power and reactivity to its user. Considering such a complex equation, Shadow is a whole new kind of PC. After 3 successful rounds of fundraising and more than 2 years of R&D, Blade opened direct sales in 2017.

2018 marks the year of global expansion: the new office in Palo Alto (California), the launch of Shadow across Europe and the creation of our secret island… Today, the Blade family is composed of more than 90 employees spread across France and the USA.

After a technical success and Isidor being acquired by Doro, Acher and Emmanuel decided to create the most powerful PC ever: Shadow.
