For desktop users, adding more displays to the PC is easy and adds to their functionality, especially for tech workers like many of us. But for laptop owners, a single display is what they have to work with, especially on the go. A designer for Belgium has created Sliden`Joy that adds multiple displays to laptops and it is portable.
Sliden’Joy display is an HD display with size options of 13, 15 and 17 inches. Up to two additional displays can be added to both Mac and Windows PC with Sliden’Joy. The displays rotate 180 degrees on aluminum hinges, providing flexible workability.
The easiest feature of Sliden’Joy, and where it gets its name is its attachment to the laptop display. The gadget attaches magnetically to the back of a laptop screen and multiple displays slide out for a multi panel display. The additional displays connect through one USB 3.0 port, or 2 USB 2.0 ports on older versions.
Charlee Jeunehomme, co-founder of the venture explains that the prototype is fully functional and shows great promise for the product. A double display panel measures 1.7 cm in thickness but it is set to go down on the final version.
Through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, the product will see one final update and backers will gain access to Sliden’Joy. The creators are marketing the product with 3D printed models to maximize their capital.
The crowdfunding campaign began July 6th and Sliden’Joy with double display is available for US$332 for the early birds. The designers offer leather, carbon and wood finishes and other customizable options for additional bucks.
