  • Back in 2015, a Belgian startup hit Kickstarter to fund development and production of a device that would extend laptop display real estate by adding two extra screens.
  • Not only did 1,600 backers make the crowdfunding effort a success to the tune of more than €600,000, but Slidenjoy – now renamed to Portabl – subsequently attracted 4,500 orders and over 10,000 pre-sale deposits and amassed some US$10 million dollars in the process.
  • The Slide doesn’t have its own battery, so draws power from the device it’s cabled to, though it might be possible to plug in an external power supply.
