Tiny monitor

Recommended Posts

Stumbled upon this, might be awesome to have next to your monitor and dump some big buttons on to control music or other things. Seems to be plug N play also. 

 

This is a 5" one:

There is also a 7" version;

If you download roccat powergrid on any phone/tablet you can create custom buttons/functions etc. Not sure its worth buying a whole new tiny monitor! :)

This is cheaper than a tablet, also alot more customizable than roccat for example. A touchscreen monitor connected directly is alot more versatile than a tablet over wifi that locks you in certain apps.

I love this little thing, haha. Dont have touch working yet because windows just sees a generic monitor but its already awesome. The image is really good and clear (hard to capture with camera) but I love the lil thing. Gonna try the 6 or 8inch version later.

I 3d printed a lil mount so its standing like this now. :wub:
