Dr. Mac recently discovered a reasonably-priced ($79) hardware/software solution called Luna Display, which lets him use his iPad as a second display for his MacBook Pro without cables, delays, or sluggishness.
Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus is obsessed with personal productivity on Macs and iDevices, but his pain is your gain with his tips on using two displays, even on the go.
Luna Display was introduced as a Kickstarter a year ago, and now it’s available for everyone. The Luna Display is a dongle that connects to your Mac via USB-C or Mini DisplayPort and turns your iPad into a wireless second display. Since it’s a hardware linkup instead of software it uses your Mac’s own graphics acceleration for improved performance. I’ve been testing one with my MacBook Pro and iPad pro for a while it’s pretty impressive. Getting a dual display setup without having to carry any extra gear when I’m travelling is awesome. You can get Luna Display at the Luna website for US$79.99.
Kelly Guimont and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to talk about the pending demise of CrashPlan for Home and options for people who have been relying on the backup service, plus they take a first look at Astro HQ’s Luna Display.
AstroPad Studio maker Astro HQ launched a Kickstarter for their new Luna Display on Tuesday and within hours it blew past its funding goal several times over.
