The USB-C portable monitor you can take anywhere

  • Published on Jan 8, 2019
  • The LG 27-inch Neo Art Portable Monitor Display is a prototype that lets you feed it both power and video via a single USB-C cable. That makes the monitor eminently transportable, with a thin and light design that makes it practical to tote around between rooms in your house or office meeting rooms.

    can you add in those kind of monitors a external battery using a double usb port on the monitor, one connected to the battery and the other to the laptop ? Thanks for the help

    make it 17" ultra slim (but robust) bezel and flip cover and now it's backpack-able

    Right so i was looking at this because i want a portable display to well 'take with me anywhere'. Now I was looking for something around 20/24 inch display in reasonably high quality and the one they are showing off was 27 but hear me out... that is not portable... it looks about as durable as an Iphone and that doesn't say a lot.. these will have to come with some bulky phone style case to not shatter in your boot as you go over a small pothole.

    this would be a great product. Someone please make this in 4k at 22'' and for a realistic price! (ie not Asus ProArt 5000 dollars)

    This, made foldable and with some magnetic solution for VESA mounts or a desk stand, and somebody might buy it.

    It sounds good in theory, but almost nobody is going to be carrying a 27-inch monitor around from place to place, even if it doesn't weigh much.

    This, with the new foldable display technology that's come in, could be this tech at its finest (although would still be kinda heavy and bloody expensive)

    This kind of thing would have a big market. Thin like shown USB-C 22" LCD 4k would sell well if offered at a decent price.

    'I de sista dagarna (NU) skall det komma svåra tider. Människorna kommer att ÄLSKA SIG SJÄLVA (tar du selfies), ÄLSKA PENGAR och ÄLSKA NJUTNING i stället för Gud och ha ett sken av gudsfruktan men förneka dess kraft, skrytsamma, stolta, hånfulla, olydiga mot sina föräldrar, otacksamma, gudlösa, kärlekslösa, skvalleraktiga, oförsonliga, obehärskade, råa, fientliga mot det goda, falska, egensinniga och högmodiga. HÅLL DIG BORTA FRÅN DEM! (2Ti 3:1-5) TY VÄRLDEN, SÅDAN DEN ÄR, GÅR MOT SIN UNDERGÅNG. (1Co7:31c)

    FN: Den globala 'utbildningen' (evolution) + den globala massmedian = laglöshetens människa, den sammanlagda lögnen. Allt detta avslutas med internet och 5G, den sista uppdateringen, där allting är sammankopplade till en enhet.(Upp12:9a) Ett digitalt kontrollnet, ett slaveri nät. Allt sammankopplat i ett 5G-system. . De är blinda ledare för blinda. Och om en blind leder en blind, faller båda i gropen. (Mat 15:14) Ty detta folks ledare för det vilse, och de som låter sig ledas går i fördärvet. (Jes 9:16) 'Människan känner inte heller sin tid. Som fiskarna fångas i olycksnätet eller fåglarna fastnar i snaran, så snärjs också människors barn i olyckans tid, när ofärd plötsligt kommer över dem.(Ecc9:12)De ogudaktiga vet ingenting. (Ps82:5a) När folk säger: 'Fred och trygghet', då drabbas de av undergång lika plötsligt som smärtan kommer över en kvinna som skall föda, och de slipper inte undan. (1Th 5:3)
    SATAN ÄR INTE RÄDD FÖR LÖGNER. Google, TheXvid, Skolsystemet, och Mass-media är fulla av Lögner. Djävulen är rädd för SANNINGEN, det är därför han ser
    till att Sanningen censureras eller flyttas bort från TheXvid och inte får utrymme i MSM (Lögn Media för Massan). SATAN ÄR SKRÄCKSLAGEN FÖR SANNINGEN. Det var också därför han såg till att 'de smarta' tog bort 'Sanningens Ord' från 'skolorna'. Den gamle ormen, som kallas Djävul och Satan, han som bedrar hela världen (med Kabbalah, Occult Gnosticism, Grekiska Filosofier, Hegeliansk Dialektiks, Humanism, Darvinism, Agenda 21 och Agenda 2030 och med lögnaktig media).(Upp12:9a)
