3D model description

This print allows you to attach a tablet or phone to your laptop and use it as a portable second monitor. Instead of throwing away old and sluggish tablets (or phones), use this to use them as a second screen! When you don't want to use a second screen, it simply slides away behind the laptop. For maximum potential for thinness, the slider (the part that holds the tablet/phone) can easily slide off and be stowed away in a bag or laptop sleeve). Having two screens has greatly increased my productivity, and is also just kind of cool to have. I think this is a cool way to reduce eWaste, as old electronics can be put to use with this print. There are commercial alternatives to this, but they are far too expensive, so I made this.
