    One of the most epic pieces of tech to ever grace the CES show room floor was Razer's Project Valerie. This was an over the top 3 screen laptop for those who are PC gaming junkies and need an epic 3 screen setup even when on the go. The only issue with Project Valerie is that it was just a prototype and didn't work fully. The displays where also not foldable. Project Valerie was apparently stolen from the show floor. Who knows when a product like this will make it to market.

    If this laptop made drool you can actually hack one of these up for yourself. Zack from "JerryRigEverything" is known for his device durability tests. Normally we see him burning, bending, and scratching flagship phones. In this video he built his very own working Project Valerie 3 screen laptop. The draw for me with this video is that it is half sarcastic/smart alec half getting it done. Zack actually takes this thing to public places and shows us just how much of a jerk you have to be to use something like this on an airplane or bus which is hysterical. He was even nice enough to include some amazon links so you can find the displays that he has used. What do you think is a triple display laptop a viable option for travel?

    Zack is a kook, but I certainly like his channel and enthusiasm. ;)

    I wanted something like this, I do remote support and use a multiple monitor system. As long as i have internet i can work anywhere. this makes me have a mobile workstation option to go away for times and be able to work. i want one.

    I wonder how often the screen falls back or forward. I would imagine with all that added weight the hinge on the actual middle screen might have trouble keeping the screens up. I wonder if it's a juggling act seeing as though this was not intended by the original laptop manufacturer

    I hate this guys videos... usually... this ones pretty cool.

    WHAT THE HELL does he do that he can afford to build this though... man.

    This also seems like a better idea



    no epoxy or glue and could probably use the same screens he used.

    I dont know if they still make them but at one of the places I used to work at we had Lenovo's that had dual screens although the second screen was pretty small it just slid into the main screen.

    One thing with that video i thought opening up that on the Plane and Blocking the other Peoples View was not cool. I hope his family was next to him. I certainly wouldnt tolerate that. i wouldn't do that. You barely have a enough room for a 17" laptop.

    I certainly hope it was just for the video, I don't think I know anyone that can be that much of a jerk.
