We all know the struggle while working on two or more excel documents, or writing a school essay project while you are researching the internet for good and quality information and literature. Heck, even as i type this, i am looking at my left external laptop monitor focusing on the text while there are x23 opened tabs in Chrome on my primary monitor where i am researching, listening to music and chatting with friends via social media channels. Of course, it is easier if you are working on a desktop PC, the monitor resolution and diagonal is way bigger than on some average laptop. The benefits of having at least one extra monitor while working on your laptop are so big, that once you get used to it, you would never want to return to one monitor setup again.

DUO is an on-the-go dual-screen laptop monitor developed by Jack Yao. He had an idea on how to boost his productivity so that he can work more efficiently. He used a broken laptop monitor, and that was enough until he realized he needs them on the move always. Days passed by, and finally, Jack developed a prototype of a light and portable monitor that was a perfect example of what's to come.

After a lot of research & development DUO is now a state of the art product that will help you finish your activities way faster. DUO is easy to set up, you only need to attach it to the back of any average laptop, and you are all set. It provides a flexible rotation and of course the dual-sided sliding so that you can use it on the left or right side. It also has a 270° rotation and the option for 180° presentation mode. And the best thing is the light weight of the product, only 1,5 lbs (680,38 grams). This means you can carry DUO almost everywhere you go, completely portable.

The product is still in the prototype stage.

How all this works: You place several magnets on the edges of your laptop screen (on the back of course), then you attach DUO on those magnetic thingies, and plug the USB in. You can, of course, slide the screen out or rotate it to the back for a quick and classy presentation mode.

  • Simple to use (plug and play)
  • Flexible Rotation (left, right, behind)
  • It is very durable (good with transportation)

  • Energy efficient (lower laptop battery consumption)
  • It is compatible with all kinds of laptops (needs USB)
  • It has a very nice 1080p high-resolution display

  • Works great with all operating systems, Mac OS, Windows, Linux, Chrome, and Android
  • Perfect for students, working from home, traveling, using at school, etc.

Extra vital features: Screen brightness is 300nits, IPS screen, display coating is matte, you can run multiple DUOs because they have individual drivers, it does not work with smartphones, the thickness of the product is 0,48 inches (1,21 centimeters), drivers automatically install on windows.

Whether you are a serious businessman who travels a lot and is only using a laptop, or a data-entry freelancer working from your home or your favorite coffee shop, DUO will be your best option for productivity and efficient working.
