About

It's no secret that using multiple monitors increases your productivity at home or in the office, but the moment you travel with your laptop, you're limited to a single screen. 

USB-powered external monitors are growing in popularity for the following reasons: 

1. Lightweight for portability 

2. Powered by your laptop's USB port - no external power/VGA cord required

The Problem

There are currently no laptop stands on the market designed to seamlessly elevate your external monitor to the correct height. According to studies, eye-level is the most optimal level to view your screen. Positioning the monitor too low can cause neck strain, back pain, or even eye-strain. A common method to raise external monitors to eye-level is by placing it on top of stationery, such as stacks of paper, or textbooks. However, this method causes desktop clutter and looks unprofessional.

Take Multitasking to the Next Level with the VEYEM Stand

After testing dozens of prototypes, we created the VEYEM stand. The patent-pending stand seamlessly elevates your external monitor vertically above your laptop, positioning your screen at eye-level. This not only allows you to view your external monitor at the most optimal viewing level, but also eliminates desktop clutter. Now you can enjoy an elevated viewing angle without taking up a lot of space on your desk. With your help, we hope to start production at cutting edge facilities and bring the VEYEM stand into your life. 

The User-Friendly Laptop Stand that Does it All

 
 

Ergonomically Friendly.

Laptops and external monitors are compact and lightweight, allowing us to compute from virtually anywhere. However, certain ergonomic features are compromised for the sake of portability, which can lead to Repetitive Motion Injuries (RMI). For more information about Repetitive Motion Injuries (RMI) click the link below:

http://www.apple.com/about/ergonomics/rmi_defs.html

The keyboard and screen on a laptop are attached, which creates an ongoing trade-off between poor neck posture and poor wrist posture.                    

When the keyboard is at the right height, the screen is positioned too low. 

When the screen is at the optimal height, the keyboard is positioned too high. 

Currently, there are laptop stands on the market that allow you to raise your laptop screen to a comfortable height, but they require the use of an external keyboard to ensure your keyboard is at the proper height. 

External monitors are designed with a built-in kickstand that allows the user to place his or her monitor off to the side of the laptop. However, positioning the monitor off-center can cause neck strain and back pain due to the repetitive twisting motion that results from looking side to side.

The ergonomic design of the VEYEM stand addresses the issues noted above by allowing users to raise his or her external monitor directly in front of them at eye-level.

Other Features

-Clutter-free Cable Management Holes: Routes wires to reduce cable clutter.

-Adjustable Viewing Angle: The friction knobs allow you to tilt the screen to the perfect viewing-angle.                                                           

-Finish: The first production run will be available in a glossy black finish to complement your external monitor.

-Dimensions: The stand folds into a 12 in (length) X 11.5 in (width) X 4 in (height) shape, making it perfect for on the go use. Once assembled, the channel of the stand is elevated 11 in above the base, allowing you to raise the device of your choice to the perfect height. In addition, the channel is 1.5 in deep, allowing you to accommodate several devices on the market. We are in the process of making changes to the design to reduce the size and weight of the stand.
