Compact 14-inch super-ultrawide portable monitor hits Kickstarter goal

The portable monitor market has been growing in recent years, although most travel-sized displays stick to standard 16:9 aspect ratio. That’s beginning to change, with a new crowdfunding campaign to fund a portable 32:9, super ultrawide portable monitor. 

Currently undergoing a Kickstarter campaign, the Lukos is a super-ultrawide portable monitor with 3840×1100 resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, 2ms response time and 14-inches of diagonal size. Other technical specs listed in the marketing material include display brightness of 300nits and 100% coverage of the sRGB colour spectrum.

The Lukos features a 4-in-1 multi-view mode that enables users to divide the screen into 4 areas with 1920×550 resolution, each with a dedicated source input. In addition, users can also divide it by 2x streams with 1920×1100 resolution.

Featuring a DisplayPort 1.2, 2x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0B connectors, an HDMI 1.4 port, and a USB-C connector, the Lukos offers many more connectivity options than its size might lead you to believe. Moreover, it features built-in speakers, OSD buttons, and an active cooling system.

At the moment, the Lukos would cost you $419 or $429 (monitor + carbon fibre protective case and a stand). You can also get a double pack for $758 or $858 (with two protective cases and stands). Manufacturing is expected to start in March, followed by shipping in April.

KitGuru says: Would you consider getting a Lukos monitor? How would you use it?
