Accessory Triples Your Laptop Screen for the Ultimate in Bus/Train Annoyance

By Gary Cutlack on at

Ever dreamed about doubling or even tripling your laptop's display area? No? Well pretend you have, because it's quite important for this 222 words about it to be of any meaning.

The thing up there is the Slidenjoy, a clip-on solution for doubling or tripling your laptop's screen output area, adding one or two tablet-like screens to your portable's case. It's available in 13-inch, 15-inch or 17-inch sizes, with the smallest one-winged version costing from €199 (£141). The enormous, two-winged 17-inch model will be proportionately more.

Exactly how much more we're not sure of just yet, as this bonkers idea -- formulated around doing away with projectors in extreme business scenarios -- is being funded by a Kickstarter campaign that's set to launch today. The makers are asking for €300,000 (about £212k) to help get it made, should you have a burning desire to be the star of a photo of you sitting on a train with your special device that goes viral as the world laughs at you.

Put it away, dad. The promotional video features business people amazing potential clients with the versatility of their multi-screened laptops, while pretending it's not possible to simply rotate an existing laptop in order to give someone a better look. Still, might be good for in-bed gaming or for incredibly immersive porn. [Slidenjoy via Gizmag]
