Small laptops are great when you need something that is ultra portable, but the trade off is that they usually have smaller displays which ends up making you feel cramped and squinty. The Venostech SideCar is an interesting solution that doesn’t require any power and uses devices you already own to add additional screen space to your laptop. The SideCar is a plastic clamp with protective neoprene inserts that has been designed to fit a wide range of devices from smartphones to tablets. The SideCar has two clamps. One for the edge of the laptop screen and the other for a smartphone or tablet. A center knob adjusts the amount of clamping power desired. Once connected to the laptop, the extra “display” can be operated independently or with the use of third-party apps it can be used as a external screen.
The Venostech SideCar is made in the USA and is priced at $29.99 for the black clip or $34.99 for one in white.

I need this clamp to fit on my Mac monitor and an iPad.
@Sandee Time to bust out the duct tape!
So which app would I use to extend my desktop to my Nexus 7?
@Alan here are a few to try:
yeah i was gonna say, is it really just a clamp?
Thanks Julie, I have Splashtop but never really thought of it as a screen extension tool just for remote desktop use, the other two do not get very good reviews so I think I will research a bit more before laying down the cash 🙂
