Like a robotic arm, the 8mm wafer-thin touchmonitor made out of aluminum and glass stretches forward – at the push of a button and whisperquietly. When extended, the monitor previously hidden in the desk hovers above the table. It can be used like a very elegant tablet in a comfortable operating position now - with an individually adjustable angle for the best view. With its 17.3“ HiRes Monitor FOLD! is larger than a conventional tablet and offers a much more comfortable image area. The entire body and interfaces are designed to be installed easily into the table and connected to the computer.
