Tired of social media sites taking up your precious screen real estate? Japan’s Elsonic (a sub-brand of Nojima) has got you covered.
The Elsonic EK-MD088 (via Gizmodo) is a small vertical display that seems tailor-made for endless scrolling through a Twitter or Facebook feed — and nothing else.
Measuring just 8.8 inches diagonally, and with a 420×1920 pixels, the EK-MD088 will snugly display a social media feed — or perhaps some other long and narrow piece of content, though we struggle to think of any. It comes with a stand, a mini-HDMI port, and a USB-C port for power delivery.
Well, that’s one way to keep an eye on Twitter.
The price for the monitor is 14,800 yen ($128), and it will be available in early February 2022, though seemingly only in Japan.
