Working remotely, I often miss the comfort of a desk, and especially having a second display for my laptop or tablet. It really facilitates work. But here is the thing: who can carry a monitor around? (Answer: no one in their right mind). Meet SPUD, the portable display you won’t be able to live without.
SPUD – aka the Spontaneous Pop-Up Display – is high resolution 24-inch screen that opens and collapses like an umbrella!
SPUD is what we have all been waiting for. And frankly, it would be hard living without one by now if we had it. When collapsed, SPUD is no larger than a hardcover book, and weights under two pounds. That alone must make it the world’s most portable display. But that’s only when it is collapsed. When you open it – like an umbrella, really – you get yourself a high-res 16:9 24-inch screen, with almost 4x more screen area than a 13-inch laptop screen! And guess what? It even has built-in stereo speakers, making it perfect for video or gaming on the go!
SPUD is easy to connect with both HDMI and USB ports on the rear, or you can also connect a wireless adapter. Its internal battery can last up to 10 hours (low luminosity) but you should expect to use it for around 3-4 hours on full brightness.
Finally, SPUD is compatible with a range of streaming services, like Chromecast and Roku, making it a true all-rounder you can use for work, presentations, gaming, or simply watching your favourite show on the go.
I’m getting one. You?
