This stacked, dual-screen monitor is unlike anything you’ve ever seen

As dual-screen setups are becoming increasingly popular in the computing space, a brand called Mobile Pixels has its own product on Kickstarter that’s already gained a considerable amount of attention.

The Geminos dual-screen desktop monitor features two 24-inch 1080p backlit LED displays, each with a 60Hz refresh rate and a 97% sRGB color gamut. The foldable setup is powered by a 100-watt pass-through USB-C charging docking station for laptops or other high-power devices.

The Geminos monitor gained so much attention it surpassed its $25,000 goal in just 36 minutes of being live on Kickstarter, according to the brand.

It has currently raised over $933,000 on the platform. The crowdfunding campaign will be live for several more weeks, until September 3.

The monitor can open like a laptop and you can slide it up the base to save space or adjust your level of comfort. The Kickstarter page says this feature with the top-bottom design of the displays with an ergonomic advantage over competitor dual-screen displays, which are often side-to-side.

The Geminos also includes a 1080p HD webcam in the upper display and two integrated 4-watt speakers. Ports are set up in the monitor’s base. In addition to the 100-watt USB-C pass-through docking station, ports include a USB-A, Ethernet port, HDMI ports, and SD card slot.

The current Kickstarter pledge price for the Geminos monitor is $499, with those peripherals expecting to ship in October. The future sale price of the dual-screen monitor will be $999.

The Geminos monitor is similar to the LG DualUp monitor, which went on sale in June for $700. It is essentially two 21.5-inch landscape-oriented displays stacked vertically, to create one large portrait display with a 16:18 aspect ratio. The double QHD (2,560 x 2,880) resolution display does not fold but does offer a vertical split view function and Ergo stand, with pivot, height, tilt, and swivel movements. The display can similarly be adjusted to maximize ergonomic comfort for users.

If the rumor is proven true, the laptop would certainly mark an innovative release for Lenovo.

The image was posted by @evleaks on Twitter alongside other gadget-related leaks. The poster is a reliable source with a proven track record, but it's important to take this report with skepticism until Lenovo makes an announcement about the release of this laptop.

The catch? It sold out within minutes of its release -- but it's likely to be restocked.
