What is it?
Le Slide takes your portable laptop and makes it more cumbersome by adding two additional monitors to it. This may sound a little counter-intuitive at first, but let’s break it down:
- It comes in 13, 15, and 17 inch (33, 38, 43 cm) models
- Full HD (1920 x 1080) 16:9 LED display with 60hz refresh rate
- Runs on a single USB 3.0 /USB-C port or two USB 2.0 ports
- Uses DisplayLink to power graphics
Why does it matter?
There’s a number of reasons why someone would want an additional two screens on a laptop. And Le Slide looks even more inviting once you realize the screens are adjustable by 180 degrees. This means you can share your screen with someone in a face-to-face meeting without having to awkwardly snuggle up together side-by-side.
Slidenjoy says it’ll use up about 30-50 percent of your battery power, so this isn’t an accessory for those who mostly work without a plug. For the rest of us though, this looks like a pretty sweet solution for people who want the portability of one screen with the option of using two or three.
In the future, the company plans on making a gaming version.
When is it coming?
