More Productivity with Slidenjoy: Give Your Laptop 2 Extra Screens

I love working on proper workstations with a setup of multiple displays for your computer. When you’re new to using more than one screen, you always think, what should I ever do with the other screens? But as soon as you start to get productive, you’ll utilize them as if you never worked with less – and you’ll always want more… more! Mooooore screens!

Then, how about laptops? Indeed, you can make use of docking stations and hook them up with a stationary setup, but that’s not really what laptops are there for. You have your laptop so you can be mobile and still work. The counter side to that was that most commonly you have only one display when using a laptop. Whether you’re at home on the couch, in the train, on a plane or in an office with hot seats, you work with that one display, and it sucks. Because you could be more productive instead.

Introducing Le Slide by Slidenjoy

The Belgian startup Slidenjoy worked hard on providing you with both the laptop mobility you love and the productivity of multiple screens. They call it {laptobility} and they mean your “Laptop’s ability to work, play, do whatever you want in a perfect mobility.” How do they do that? Well, they went through a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund their work, and they came up with a screen system that gets attached to your laptop, upgrading it from only one screen to have three monitors to work with.

So what is it about, in a nutshell? With Le Slide you can add two additional screens to your laptop. The displays can be flipped and turned around in a flexible way too. Whether you’re doing a presentation in a meeting room, being a mass-entertaining DJ, gaming with that much extra space, or just an enthusiastic power user, you’re very likely going to enjoy this new kind of experience.

So, what does it cost?

It’s not a cheap system, I’d agree to that, but considering this solution includes two displays and everything to make it work, I find it to be a fair offering. When comparing to other solutions, make sure take that into account. Many different solutions that sell something like this are merely mounts and holding systems to place your phone or tablet there – those are not actual screen extensions.

The regular kit starts at €349 (~$429) with three different sizes and nine different colors to choose from. They also have more pricey versions, but I thought the regular one looks already nice. You can check out all the different versions on their website. What do you think about this gadget? Going for Le Slide? Let us know in the comments below!

Update: Based on the feedback of several backers and comments on this article, it appears that many are unhappy with the campaign, as the product has not been delivered in a long time. We have not received feedback from the company either so proceed with caution.

      • Some backers are getting a class action ready. Just take a look at all the comments:
        https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/slidenjoy/slidenjoy-double-or-triple-your-screens/comments

        Some of their lies:

        – 3 years ago, according to their campaign, they had a production ready prototype.
        – they supposedly filed for a european patent, as an excuse to hide everything from backers (they didnt even provide the patent request number)
        – they had to delay the production because they needed to produce in Belgium to get some help from the Belgian government (finally, apparently, they are producing in China)
        – supposedly they went to ces, many backers passed by their booth, only to find it deserted
        – all the pictures on your article are old, there is no evidence of any new production ready prototype
        – all the prototypes you see there are just asus screens taped together (there are some photos where you can see the asus logo masked and videos showing the asus logo on startup)

        and over all they treat backer with complete disrespect bordering the insult (or they just ignore us)

          • many would argue they portrayed the product to be closer to completion than it was (by a lot). They also promised different technical capacities and additions to the screens that won’t be fulfilled. A specific example was the promise of individual graphics added to the back panels of each slideNjoy. Yes, Chris, that constitutes fraud.

  1. be careful, slidenjoy is a scam, show no real evidence and progress on their project, every update is about marketing and advertisement of their prototype to suck in more money. even the creater has said and answered the backer that they didnt tell us the whole truth which caused the delay, as they knew we wouldnt have backed it had they told the truth, that is call LIE and DECEIT.

  2. Isreal
    You are missing, that we already got i think 3 delivery timelines they ignored after it. Last was Delivery in January for backers and first a confirmation email so we can update our order ( screen size and design) and our delivery addresses. Well both didn’t happen.
    They ignore every kind of communication of backers. Is it via Kickstarter, Facebook or email.
    The Illegal Practices that you can’t cancle your preorder (made via the website) to get your deposit back isn’t mentioned, too. (was mentioned in several Facebook comments on their page) 😀
    They also delete all visitor post on their Facebook page. No matter if you ask a normal question or not.
    Well no matter i wouldn’t give them another cent ^^’

  3. Seriously Chris,
    Have you seen this in the flesh and had hands on usage? I’ve been promise my slide and joy for 3 years with 5 different delivery dates, your article supporting this ‘product’ damages the credibility of your website Techacute.com, as a tech journalist, did you not at least google the product. For the moment this is mere vapourware, with the money received from the kickstarters and pre-orderers only funding the lifestyle of the 3 founders. Try harder…

    • Hi Shaun, they posted an update to their project site on the same day I worked on this article. While it’s certainly late, I have no information that this is a scam. As of now everything seems to be aligned with Kickstarter’s terms. I added an update to the article that advices prospects to proceed with caution though because of the delays to the delivery. It’s not long until the currently set shipping date. Would you let me know once you have received something?

  4. Another unfulfilled pre-order here. With all due respect, Christopher Isak, as author of the article the burden of proof is on you to show that the claims you have made in the article are true. That is what “verification” means. It is my understanding that the following claims you made are simply not factual:
    1) “The Belgian startup Slidenjoy worked hard on providing you with both the laptop mobility you love and the productivity of multiple screens.” This is incorrect: they have not provided anything. They have proposed an idea and demonstrated a prototype. A single prototype, with no second prototype or other units ever demonstrated, never mind any actual consumer units produced or shipped.
    2) “Well, they went through a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund their work, and they came up with a screen system that gets attached to your laptop, upgrading it from only one screen to have three monitors to work with.” They had a Kickstarter campaign, but it was not successful in the sense of actually completing the project according to Kickstarter’s Terms of Use. Quoting from that ToU: “If a creator is unable to complete their project and fulfill rewards, they’ve failed to live up to the basic obligations of this agreement. To right this, they must make every reasonable effort to find another way of bringing the project to the best possible conclusion for backers. A creator in this position has only remedied the situation and met their obligations to backers if:
    -they post an update that explains what work has been done, how funds were used, and what prevents them from finishing the project as planned;
    -they work diligently and in good faith to bring the project to the best possible conclusion in a timeframe that’s communicated to backers;
    -they’re able to demonstrate that they’ve used funds appropriately and made every reasonable effort to complete -the project as promised;
    -they’ve been honest, and have made no material misrepresentations in their communication to backers; and
    -they offer to return any remaining funds to backers who have not received their reward (in proportion to the amounts pledged), or else explain how those funds will be used to complete the project in some alternate form.” (end ToU quote)
    They have not fulfilled these conditions or the original project.
    3) “With Le Slide you can add two additional screens to your laptop. The displays can be flipped and turned around in a flexible way too. Whether you’re doing a presentation in a meeting room, being a mass-entertaining DJ, gaming with that much extra space, or just an enthusiastic power user, you’re very likely going to enjoy this new kind of experience.” You are claiming here that “you” can do this, writing to the general public. This is untrue: nobody who is not in possession of the sole existing prototype can do any of these things. The fact that these are the stated goals of the project does not mean that the goals were reached and the reality brought into being.
    4) “It’s not a cheap system, I’d agree to that, but considering this solution includes two displays and everything to make it work, I find it to be a fair offering.” It is not a fair offering, sir, because the payments rendered do not result in the actual product received.

    Please consider updating your article, or writing a follow-up, with the rest of the story. Thank you.

  5. Three years in, I’m still waiting on my screens to be delivered. I’m good with slow delivery, sometimes you just can’t control when things happen. That forgiveness would last about 3 months. At twelve times that duration, its time to call it a scam.

  6. To anybody planning to buy this product, I’d say it’s still a scam until they ship out to their early backers. I’m also helping you save your money, you’re welcome.

  7. Beware. I didn’t back them on kickstarter, although I preordered on their website 2 years ago. They are dodging any questions sent to them, my order isn’t even showing up when logged in on their platform. They claimed this was due to moving to a new database and that it would be fixed soon. This was last year, and still nothing.

    They claimed that they would be ready to ship after CES 2018. But when demoing the product there they claimed it was just a prototype (again) and that they would begin manufacturing soon. The prototype showed seemd to have issues with the hinges and just did not look ready for production.

    They continually come with false claims on when they will ship the product. This has been done several times already.
    Save your money.

  8. beware, they’ll suck you win with online deposit and offer 10-20% discounts. they do this to get more money in and completely piss off early backers by doing so and offer NO INFO AT ALL. DO NOT trust them.

  9. That’s actually pretty typical of the situation. When the community tries to warn someone of the fraud, he usually goes to the KickStarter page, he reads the two last updates and is convinced that it is not a fraud since there are pictures of the product… However, there are pictures of the product since day 1…

    The main issue is that the creators are very good marketers and would make you buy a pill that could cure all disease on Earth. However, if you take time to read comments on the Kickstarter page, you’ll understand why everyone thinks that it’s a scam. Man, we passed by soooo many steps.

    Moments when they were communicating pretty much promising a lot of things…
    Moments when they hired communication people to answer us… until she leaves two months after…
    All the deadline promises unkept…
    All the time they were showing off they that thanks to them, Belgian prisoners would have work assembling Slidenjoy… Then, recently, they announce that the production would actually be done in China…

    I could go on like that all night long but it would not make any difference in your feelings, however, I would advice you to put your update in bold at the beginning of your article because these guys could easily hurt your credibility when in 1 year, the product will still not be delivered to anyone…

  10. this is a scam. just check the kickstarter page comments for proof.. 3 years late and still didnt get anything.. dont expect to get something when even its OWN backers are still waiting for the item in question..
