    The SPUD Pop Up Display is a different take to foldable technology that we're getting a bit used to lately, but is it worth it?

      For 400$ I would've bought a new 240hz 1080p screen that is smaller and cheaper, not as portable but that crap with portability? Nah, dude.. atleast not for 400$.

              Really? Someone saw this kickstarter campaign and thought "hey, this is an awesome idea, let's back it for $400!".
              People are so stupid, it's unbelievable.

                  This was a bad idea from the get go, Idk how you Kickstarter backers get scammed like this so much. It was so obvious it was gonna be bad, it’s hilarious.

                                                    you know, instead of back-fired projector, why not use front-firing dead-close projector instead

                                                    the shape reminds me the 80's concept of networked computers

If your on a train that is going down the track and the train gets wobbly (like my local commuter train does) then this would not work. If a jet hit turbulents then the screen will get wobbly and that will not work either. Or if your on a bumpy road then the screen would get wobbly and that would not work as well. Your laptop and smartphone have much greater resolution than 720p. It's a completely flawed design.
