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.

    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)

    “It’s not completely wireless but we’re never going to get that” Emmm no I disagree we are going to get completely wireless, data, we already have, and power will be wireless. We just need data streams of 40GB/s to completely separate every electronic in a computer. You could have this screen with the computing power of a super computer just processed off location. 5g can already do 10GB/s. 4 times the speed of that and we are there. Imagine the applications. Wireless power; r/f, ultrasound, magnetic induction? Ahem all wirelessly transmit power. And you would need little of it.

    I would have loved something like this, but more along the lines of a 13-15" monitor. As a consultant, this could be super handy. Instead of using my iPad as the external monitor when I don't have a extra monitor laying around.

    This thing would be actually amazing in a bit smaller size and with a kickstand. Just imagine bringing your monitor from work to home, or you're a freelancer that travels alot.
    Love the minimalistic design and I can't wait to see this being more developed over time!

    This tech isn't new. AOC makes a 16in monitor with a kickstand that gets power and signal from a single USB 3 connection. It's small at 16in but it's actually portable unlike these.
