Sliden`Joy adds two more displays to your laptop

Interesting Engineering

Many users of desktop computers have two or even three monitors on their desk to provide them with plenty of real estate but laptop users are generally stuck with the single display. However, the Sliden`Joy could change this and a designer from Belgium has put it on Kickstarter seeking funds. The device adds on one or two HD displays that are light and thin, in sizes of 13, 15 and 17 inches. This means you can take additional displays wherever you go.

The displays are available for both the PC and Mac and the displays are able to rotate around by 180 degrees on their hinges made from aluminium. This means that they can be placed in a variety of poses, such as turned to face the back or to the sides or all facing the user of the laptop.

The Sliden`Joy is easily set up onto the back of the user's laptop display as it attaches magnetically. The extra displays are then slid out and are connected to the laptop through two USB 2.0 ports or one single USB 3.0 port.

The co-founder of the device is Charlee Jeunehomme and he said that the prototype is fully working, however all the components, including the hinges are still being worked on. This explains why at the moment, the photos shown are of a 3D printed version.

The thickness and weight of the device is going to depend on the production of the components and which finish the user chooses. However the prototype is only 1.7cm thick on the version offering two additional displays. The final version may actually be thinner.

The Kickstarter campaign is starting 6 July and the company aims to offer it in 13, 15 and 17 inches and more sizes will follow. Pledges are US$221 for one additional display and US$332 if you want the version offering two additional displays. The designers offer different finishes, such as leather, wood and carbon, however some choices will come with additional costs.
