The Kickstarter project is looking to finance a compact display, which can transform an Xbox Series S into a kind of gaming laptop. It could be an ideal solution for anyone who has to share a television with someone else in the same household.

If you are one of the lucky ones to own an Xbox Series S (US$375 on Amazon), a new product on Kickstarter called the xScreen could be particularly interesting for you. It's a display that can be attached to the back side of the console, and it can be easily opened and closed, just like a regular gaming laptop.

To use the xScreen, you don't need to modify your console, and you don't even need an additional HDMI or power cable. Even though the xScreen doesn't have an integrated battery, powering it with an external battery pack may also be possible in theory. The display itself measures 11.6 inches while offering a Full-HD resolution of 1,920 by 1,080 pixels and a refresh rate of 60Hz. It further features stereo speakers and dedicated buttons to adjust the volume and brightness, while weighing in at only 695g (about 1.5 lbs).

From a technical point of view, the product is rather simplistic, but it can turn an Xbox Series S into a much more flexible device that allows you to keep playing when someone else is occupying your TV. Additionally, it enables you to take your console to a friend's place and have an epic co-op session.

As always, supporting projects on Kickstarter poses a certain risk. If the product never makes it to market or something goes awry during the production phase, you may neither get an xScreen nor a refund at all. If you want to try your luck, you can pre-order an xScreen for US$249 directly on the Kickstarter website. The release of the xScreen is currently slated for January 2022.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
