Sculptor Monitor is a start-up that has launched its eponymous new external display on Indiegogo. The company claims that it addresses a number of drawbacks of the average standalone monitor with this new device. They include USB type C ports that only do data or charging, bulky designs and a lack of 4K.

One of the latest entries to the laptop-sized secondary display is the Sculptor monitor, a 15.6-inch panel that can offer a UHD resolution. Its maker claims that it solves many of the problems that may be associated with this device class, a bulky design included.

This external monitor is described as having a frame of 4 millimeters (mm) in depth crafted from CNC-milled metal. However, this dimension does increase to 10mm at the kick-stand, a part that allows the Sculptor to take an adjustable stance (up to 90 degrees) and also supports its ability to auto-rotate between orientations whenever necessary.

The monitor has micro-USB and mini-HDMI ports, as well as 2 USB type C ports. Sculptor Monitor claims that both of them are rated for power and data, whereas some of its competitors apparently equip their external displays with ports, that, while up-to-date, only do 1 of each. 

Therefore, the Sculptor may be compatible with many consoles - the Nintendo Switch included - as well as PCs, Android phones, iPads Pro and digital cameras. It may also suit those who could do with the occasional addition of a portrait screen to their set-up, although it does have an eye-drawing chin.

This monitor is now available as a reward on its Indiegogo page. Its 4K SKU goes for US$320, although there are also FHD versions for $239 (correct at time of writing), both of which have a 60Hz refresh rate. Sculptor Monitor currently projects that it can start shipping from April 2020, and has not updated this with anything related to the coronavirus pandemic thus far. However, it does also claim that production of this new external monitor has already begun.
