If you're a fan of editing on a laptop, but wish there was a portable way to get the screen real estate of one or two additional monitors, the Sliden'Joy is made just for you.
What is Sliden'Joy, you ask? Well, it's an accessory that attaches to your laptop via a set of powerful magnets, connects to the computer through USB, then gives the user one or two full HD monitors, which can be swiveled any number of ways. Here's a quick video that shows how it all works:
The Sliden'Joy is currently funding on Kickstarter, and in the day since the campaign launched, it has raised over 1/3 of its $300,000 goal. Here's their video:
The Sliden'Joy comes in a whole array of different configurations.
- Choose single or double screens.
- 13" 15" or 17" models.
- 9 different color options on the standard version
- 5 premium options including wood, leather, and aluminum
While the Sliden'Joy will likely be an awesome tool for laptop editors looking to maximize their screen real estate, the swivel functions on the monitors open up a world of possibilities for using the device as a way to share media with collaborators and clients. No more huddling around a small laptop screen to show off an edit.
The early bird price of these devices range from €199 (roughly $220) for the single screen standard version to €299 for the two-screen standard version. If you want one of the premium designs, tack on another €50. To learn more, head over to the Sliden'Joy Kickstarter page.
