Not to be confused with the Razer Blade, the Odake BladeX is an unrelated Kickstarter project for an external 15.6-inch monitor. Much like the Razer Blade, however, the BladeX is notable for its very thin profile and light weight to be the perfect travel companion.
The Blade X will be just 4.5 mm and 857 g heavy to be significantly more portable than your typical monitor. The adjustable bottom stand will allow for multiple modes including Landscape, Portrait, and Tent much like on any 360-degree convertible laptop. A built-in 3000 mAh battery promises up to 3 hours of real-world use while the HDMI and USB Type-C inputs can accept a wide range of inputs including game consoles and laptops.
While definitely attractive, it remains to be seen how key specifications like contrast ratio, colors, response times, and brightness will be on the BladeX. After all, a monitor with poor colors or too much ghosting would not be ideal for editing or gaming purposes. We'll likely find out more about the monitor when its Kickstarter page goes live on June 25th for a starting price of $180.
