This three-screen laptop is both amazing and ridiculous
Read Full Story
There you were, living in a reality where laptops had a single screen. And then the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show happened, and suddenly a paradigm shifted.
That's right, folks: Razer is taking the bold step of not just doubling, but outright tripling the number of laptop screens. This is Project Valerie, a super bizarre concept from a company known for making very nice, very expensive gaming hardware.
The first thing you'll notice, of course, is the three-screen concept. In total, the screens create a massive 11520 x 2160 display.Razer
Razer's calling it "12K," which isn't exactly accurate. These are three 17.3-inch discreet displays, each offering 4K visuals.Razer
So, how does this work? The screens are automated — you push a button and they extend out:Razer
There are rockers holding each screen in place when in the three-screen setting:Razer
There's also a bit of characteristic Razer-green shining through in a backlight:Razer
More than just a bizarre concept, Project Valerie has some serious horsepower: a cutting edge NVIDIA 1080 GTX graphics processor.Razer/EA
It looks like a kind of massive laptop when it's all closed and folded up:Razer
Of note: a USB-C port, a USB 3.0 port, and an HDMI port.Razer
There are no plans to produce Project Valerie — for now it's a concept project by Razer, a company notorious for such concepts:Razer
There is, however, a sweet video showing off what Project Valerie could look like should it go into production. Some of Razer's past projects have become real (Project Fiona, for instance), so it's possible! Check out the video right here:
