@jackyao82432526: I've read you also support Linux, will it need a DisplayLink[1][2] driver ? USB monitor support in Linux is pretty experimental (mainly from vendors not providing open specs), requiring you to download version-specific binaries, and alike. Also "Linux" support itself should be clarified re: which actual distros are supported, unless the driver exists upstream, hence my question above. Thanks! --jjo [1] https://wiki.archlinux.org/index... [2] http://www.displaylink.com/downl...

I came up with the idea while I was doing my internship at Amazon. I worked in a co-working space where I moved around a lot, and I did not have a secondary monitor. So I took apart an old laptop and build our very first prototype. After my internship, we received multiple rounds of funding from MIT and NEU, eventually we finalized out product and we are now live on Kickstarter!

Hey Jack! Neat project, and congrats on the successful kickstarter! On average, how does this affect battery life when people are out and about?

@_rlntlss Hi Bret! Thanks for the post. Power consumption really depends on what apps you are running on your laptop. The LCD panel draws about 1.6 watts, and the total consumption is around 2.6 watts. Now, I know this doesn't answer your questions, but if I leave by 15" MacBook Pro plugged into the screen, without running any apps, it lasts 8 hours, down from 12 hours.
