The Slide, by Portabl, is an extremely unique patented sliding and rotating system consisting of one or two monitors for collaborative use.
In the year 2015, Charlee Jeunehomme along with his two associates Laurent Wéry and Thomas Castro invented the world’s first triple screen extension for laptops on a single USB cable. They named this innovative creation “The Slide”. With a goal to improve people’s efficiency with this new device, The Slide has taken the market by storm. It allows users to work or study from anywhere, anytime.
“We want to provide organizations, employees, students, and individuals with a useful and efficient instrument to meet the new expectations of the professional sector”.
It all started with a simple yet visionary idea, guided by their corporate mission – reinventing the portability and efficiency of people all around the world. From a personal need and after the first proof of this concept handmade, Charlee Jeunehomme clearly understood that it was a basic need shared by many laptop users. Now, The Slide proudly meets the real needs of millions of laptop users around the world.
Even when thinking about it, this is such a huge ambition that no one expected a startup to come up with. Especially when it was the very first product of this startup. This is the kind of project that we expect a billion-dollar company such as Dell, Lenovo, HP, or many others to launch. It is definitely a huge success for the company.
“Slide will always and forever remain our first child, but not the only one. Over the past couple of years, we focused all of our attention on one particular product to make it as perfect as it can be. We adapted to the evolving world in order to provide a product we are proud of”.
Well, they have clearly made themselves proud by inventing the world’s first device that transforms any laptop into a triple screen one, on a single USB cable.
To this day, The Slide has been seen more than 200 million times on social media platforms, has been endorsed by more than 1000 new articles globally, generated more than 300,000 subscriptions on the mailing list, registered 4,500 firm orders, and more than 10,000 pre-sales.
The company, Portabl, by Charlee Jeunehomme, Laurent Wéry and Thomas Castro is only at the beginning of a long and astonishing story. They are constantly improving their technology and products, pioneering in a new era – looking for new companies sharing the same dream of reinventing portability and ready to do anything to design the solutions of tomorrow.
