The Laptop With Seven Screens
Expanscape has made this amazing laptop which comes with 7 times more screens than a normal laptop. It’s a prototype called the Aurora 7, and added to its humongous black box of a body are six more displays that extend out in every direction away from the main screen, each exhibiting its own windows and apps.
The first thought that comes to someone’s mind is “that poor hinge!” Yeah, overburden hinge, indeed. Many laptop hinges don’t smoothly handle having one screen attached, let alone 7 screens. Comes with the main 17.3-inch 4K display are three other screens of the same size and resolution. Above the left and right screens is a single seven-inch 1200p monitor. You’ll also find one more seven-inch 1200p touchscreen display installed into the wrist rest. This prototype weighs about 26 pounds and is 4.3 inches thick. It has an impressive, awesome presence.
Which GPU is used to power up to four 4K displays? None other than the midrange Nvidia GTX 1060, which isn’t exactly a powerhouse. It also has an Intel Core i9-9900K processor and 64GB of RAM. You can find more details here. Expanscape wants to use the Nvidia RTX 2070 in the future, with options for the AMD Ryzen 9 3950x processor or Intel’s i9-10900K.
Even though it’s created primarily to be a mobile security operations station, maybe it’ll be able to run some games, too. The current prototype can last for just one hour before the battery cries for more power, which is honestly longer than one expected it to run. It uses a secondary 148Wh battery just to power its additional displays, and that’s over the FAA’s legal limit to fly in a plane. Expanscape says it’s working to correct this in future models.
