Want the portability of a laptop, but the versatility of a multi-monitor setup? You could buy a portable display and lug it around. Or you could back Slidenjoy’s Kickstarter campaign for a system that makes it simple to add an extra screen or two to your laptop.

slidenjoy

Slidenjoy clips onto the back of your laptop display with magnets, and lets you slide out up to two displays. You can adjust the angle of the displays, and even flip them around so other people can see what you’re working on.

Early backers of the Kickstarter campaign can reserve a Slidenjoy with a single screen for a pledge of about $220. A twin screen model will set you back at least $330.

Each screen is an IPS display with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, and Slidenjoy will offer 13, 15, and 17 inch models at launch. The plan is to ship the first Slidenjoy units to backers of the campaign in December.

The screens connect to your computer using a USB 3.0 or USB 2.0. Data and power are both transferred over USB, so you won’t need to plug in a power cable… although your laptop battery will probably run down rather quickly if you’re using it to power three displays instead of one.

Slidenjoy says its system supports both Windows and OS X, allowing you to extend your desktop or mirror your screen.

The company is also working on Linux support and if the original Kickstarter campaign is successful, Slidenjoy eventually hopes to add new models with integrated batteries, touchscreens, and support for desktop computers.

  1. it’s a scam!!!

    paid more than a year ago ago and nothing delivered so far, not even an update on the progress.
    when i contacted them, they told me to be patient…
    when i asked for a refund, they told me to be patient…
    when i told them it has gone on for long enough and insisted on my refund I just got ghosted…

    don’t fall for this scam

  2. Aren’t there a few of these on the market already? How about the multi-screen laptops that didn’t go over too well?

  3. Needs a battery pack under the bottom of the laptop to add weight for stability and to power the extra displays.

  4. Are these touchscreens? Because if they are – Great! When I touch the touchscreen on my laptop, the laptop tips over. Now that can happen two or three times more often!
