The Odake BladeX portable monitor is an external monitor that measures an incredible 4.5 mm in thickness. Designed to be portable, it weighs only 857 grams. It comes with an adjustable bottom that allows you to set it up for three different viewing angles—Landscape, Portrait, and Tent.
It also supports both vertical and horizontal orientations. In other words, this is the “on the road” monitor that film editors, writers, and gamers have been looking for.
Equipped with a 1080p resolution, the BladeX also has touchscreen capability (if you want better resolution instead of touchscreen, you can opt for the BladeX Pro which has a 4K display but doesn’t allow touchscreen). The monitor measures 15.6 inches and has multiple inputs—HDMI and Type C—so you can use it as a second screen with your laptop or use it to plug in your gaming system.
Speaking of gaming, the BladeX is “plug and play” with smartphones, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4. The stand, where the connection ports are located, also houses speakers and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The BladeX has 300nits of brightness and offers a 1000:1 contrast ratio, with a 60Hz refresh rate. It also offers 100 per cent of the Adobe RGB colour space—again, making it perfect for those creative types looking at videos and images.
To be truly portable, however, you can’t be tied to an outlet. The BladeX can be powered via an AC adapter, but it also has a built-in 300 mAh battery that provides ups to three hours of power.
The BladeX and the BladeX pro are expected to be available come November 2019, and will sell for USD$209 and $309 respectively. The monitors are already completely funded on Indiegogo.
With the BladeX, you can stay productive with a two-screen setup no matter where you go.
