For many of us, our laptops are our main work tools, and we carry them with us everywhere we go. But while they are some really useful devices, there are moments when you could make use of an extra screen. And if you don’t want a traditional multi-monitor setup, then Slidenjoy is something that might be of great interest to you.
Currently seeking crowdfunding on Kickstarter, Slidenjoy is described as being ultra-thin, light, portable and free-standing. As you will see in the video from below, it’s quite easy to unfold it, thus adding one or two extra screens to your laptop. This ingenious piece of gadgetry attaches to the back of their laptop bringing a full panoramic display and allowing you to share content through its 180 degrees rotation. There’s no better way to describe it than the dream of any multitasker out there.
The Slidenjoy accessory is powered and connected by a single USB port, which makes it really easy to enable. It works for Mac and Windows laptops, comes with a full HD screen and has aluminium hinges. Sliden’Joy can be used web development, graphic design, photography, business, gaming, architecture, design and in anything else, really. You can also use it during meetings as the Sliden’Joy can be positioned in triangle, as well.
You can choose between two models of Sliden’Joy – 1 or 2 external screens; it comes in 3 available sizes – 13, 15 and 17 inch with even more options coming soon. The regular version is made from rigid high quality plastic, the device is available in the following colors – yellow, green, red, blue, pink, turquoise, orange, black and white while the premium model is made from rigid high quality materials, and comes in brushed aluminium, light wood, dark wood, alcantara and leather. There’s also a limited edition in in carbon and full grain leather.
At the time of writing this, more than 1000 backers have pledge around €430,027, thus exceeding the initial goal of €300,000, with 18 days still left to go. This means that Sliden’Joy could be adapted to touchscreen technology and the team is also looking to integrate a long-life battery right in the accessory and make it available for Linux users, as well.
If you will pledge €199, you will receive a Sliden’Joy with one additional screen “single” regular, in any of the 9 colors available with an estimated delivery in this December. For €299 you will receive a Sliden’Joy two additional screens “twins” regular, in any of the 9 colors available.
