Meet the SPUD: A 24-inch collapsible hi-res screen that you can open like an umbrella

Meet the SPUD: A 24-inch collapsible hi-res screen that you can open like an umbrella

 The SPUD or Spontaneous Pop-Up Display is a portable second display that could come in handy.

It could be useful for presentations, an addition to a road warrior's travel kit, or merely to show movies on camping trips.

 It packs a battery-powered projector and screen in a collapsible design that opens like an umbrella. When closed, it's about the size of a book and weighs about 2 lbs. Pull back the projector, which shoots the image from the rear, and the SPUD's polymer screen opens like an umbrella to serve as a 24-inch display.

The SPUD costs $374 under early bird and promises to support HDMI connections and connects wirelessly to streaming devices like Roku and Chromecast.

SPUD's developers, Arovia, estimate it will cost $499 once it's available at retail. The campaign has currently raised just over $190,000, enabling the firm to commit to adding stereo speakers to the device. If funding reaches $250,000, the company promises to boost the battery life from 6 hours to 10 hours.

 

And... That's it!
