DUO by Mobile Pixels

The campaign has been receiving a lot of great feedback from our supporters and my team and I are excited to announce some brand new stretch goals to help increase DUO’s momentum and give our customers a product they love.

MIT-backed startup Mobile Pixels has taken the tech world by storm with their latest invention, DUO, the portable second laptop monitor designed to work with virtually any laptop. With mentions in New Atlas and Trendhunter, the slide-out, dual monitor is now 850% funded and shows no signs of slowing down.

The main aspect of DUO that has caught over 1,500 backers’ attention is its compatibility with any laptop, without the use of additional space or real estate, through a simple, plug-and-play USB connection. DUO provides a full 270° rotation, with the option for a 180° presentation mode, so consumers can choose an optimal viewing angle for any situation.

DUO’s ABS plastic exterior helps the portable screen withstand any wear and tear that comes with transporting and travelling with a laptop. Weighing only 1.5 pounds, DUO provides the true mobility needed to move from workspace to workspace.

“On the average workday, I found that toggling between tabs, windows, and applications was causing me to lose, on average, about 10 seconds every five minutes. So, I developed DUO out of the necessity to increase my productivity. And, with DUO, you can now boost your productivity by up to 50%,” explained DUO’s Creator, Jack Yao. “The campaign has been receiving a lot of great feedback from our supporters and my team and I are excited to announce some brand new stretch goals to help increase DUO’s momentum and give our customers a product they love.”

Available in a 12.5-inch screen size and compatible with the Mac, Windows, Linux, Android and Chrome operating systems, DUO is still available at a 20% discounted rate for a limited time only. With 25 days left in the campaign to continue collecting pre-orders, DUO is well on its way to getting in the hands of consumers by its projected January ship date.
