Dual monitors have been a mainstay for many computer users over the past years as they can increase productivity. Typically, most people set them up side by side. While some people do stack them as well, using two separate monitors isn’t always ideal due to lack of ergonomics, gaps between the monitor, and large bezels. While widescreen monitors fix this issue, most are fixed in landscape mode which can also take up a large amount of desktop space.
Enter Geminos, the fifth laptop accessory product from Mobile Pixels. With an ergonomic design, the Geminos is an “infinitely adjustable stacked dual-screen desktop monitor.” Not only are the monitors nice, with large 24-inch displays, but there is also a built-in 1080p webcam, speakers, and a USB docking station with 100W USB-C pass-through charging. Geminos is designed with a minimal gap between the displays, can be angled vertically in a number of ways, and takes up no more desk space than a single 24-inch monitor.
