Although smartphones and tablets have put an endless supply of entertainment right at the palm of our hands, our preferred way to consuming media is still on the big screen. It offers a different level of immersion, which gets lost on a small hand-held device. However, it would be impractical to lug around a TV or computer monitor just for the sake of immersive entertainment when we’re out and about.
The Spontaneous Pop-up Display (SPUD) is a portable high resolution 24-inch screen that collapses and expands, much like an umbrella. It bridges the gap between portability and immersion by offering a large screen that you can take with you, no matter where you go. When collapsed, SPUD is the size of a book that can easily fit into your bag, but also deploys in seconds when a larger screen is needed for gaming, watching a movie, or for a presentation.
