Portable large screen

folding portable battery operated large screen
  [vote for,

Comfortable Online Video Integrated Display: A lightweight folding large screen, powered with batteries, to be used in the hotel lobby or in class (when the two become useful again after we get over Corona)

Receives the vid signal with a bluetooth wireless HDMA interface.

Put it in you laptop bag, and use it in the park or at home. Take your big screen from your desk and bring it to the long and boring meeting.

We adamantly discourage you from taking it to your bed or to the toilet.

       You're no fun any more, do you know that ?   

       Battery-powered video projectors are Baked and WKTE. Presumably this is a large LCD/LED/OLED ? There doesn't seem to be much innovation here, large screens running off low voltage DC are also Baked and WKTE.

       So why is it that last week when I searched for two days on the web to buy my daughter a portable large screen, I couldn't find one, and now after you said so, I immediately found "The Best Portable Monitors for 2020" ? OK largest is 17'' so still not there.   

       Maybe I was using display and screen and didn't think of any other searchwords such as monitor? But I still didn't see anything like I wanted. Then I found [[this youtube: The USB-C portable monitor you can take anywhere]] and understood from the narration that it will never be truly wireless. Still we are getting there.   

       Bottom line. NOT WKTE, and not even baked yet. But for a reason: They don't have a good folding tech yet.

       Not "good fold up", but there is "roll up" from LG (not wire- less or portable, yet...).

       For me, folds up as small as a postage stamp, unfolds to be the size of a house, would be about right.

       Ignore his ludicrous babblings, they're completely impractical. Only someone who works in marketing would take something like that seriously.   

       No, just make it so that - folded up - it's the exact same form factor as a regular credit card, so it can be carried in a wallet, and folds out to a screen with a three metre diagonal. Oh, and it runs off a single CR2016 lithium cell.   

       There now, that shouldn't be so hard, should it ?

       27 inch wide screen folds into 3x2 9'' ones. What's wrong with that?
pashute, Dec 07 2020

       Would you settle for rolling the screen up?
