X Screen transforms the Xbox One S into a laptop-like portable device that was crowdfunded in under 20 minutes
In under 20 minutes, the Kickstarter campaign was entirely financed.
Normally, you have to put anything back together after disassembling it, but after Ben Heck dismantled his Xbox One S, he decided it would be too simple to simply return it to its original casing. He wanted to transform it into a portable laptop with a screen so he could play full-powered games on the go (so long as you have a power cord nearby.)
Now you can play next-gen games
In comparison to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, the Series S is a significantly lighter system to transport. While it isn’t a Nintendo Switch, this new portable monitor is designed to allow you to play next-gen games on the road while also allowing you to play limitless titles on Game Pass. It’s clear that it’s a popular concept, as it reached its Kickstarter funding target in under 20 minutes.
Xbox like a laptop
The xScreen by UPspec Gaming is an attachable display that transforms the Xbox Series S into a laptop-like design, allowing you to play Xbox Series S games even when you don’t have access to a TV or monitor. It has an 11.6-inch 1080p IPS screen with a 60Hz refresh rate, as well as built-in speakers. The screen connects directly to the Series S’s HDMI and USB ports on the rear.
New amazing features
The xScreen also has a pass-through port, so you can put in the power cord or a storage expansion card without the device getting in the way. The screen does not require its own power source, nor does it require any modifications to your Series S, according to UPspec. The final model will be tailored to match the Series S case’s color and finish.
Fold the screen into the console
The design also allows you to fold the screen into the console for convenient portability because it has a laptop-like size factor. According to UPspec, the xScreen can fit into a 15-inch laptop bag when linked to the Series S.
It`s coming soon
The device’s Kickstarter campaign began at 10 a.m. ET this morning, and it was fully funded just 20 minutes after it went live on the website. While the project has already met its financing target, there is still time to support it before it closes on August 6.
Donation for One XScreen
You will receive one xScreen display for your Xbox Series S if you donate $249 AU (roughly $187 USD / $135) to the project. Keep in mind that the xScreen’s projected delivery date is January 2022, according to the Kickstarter page.
