I just discovered Luna Display this morning, which will allow you to use your iPad as a wireless second screen for your Mac. There are software solutions that do this, such as Duet Display (requires a cable between your devices), which I use regularly when I'm away from home or even working from a coffee shop. The difference with Luna Display is that it will access your Mac's GPU (assuming you have a Mac with a GPU) for better performance. It uses a dongle that will plug into a USB-C port on newer Macs and a mini-display port on older Macs. 

 

Here's the promo video

Here's the Kickstarter page. They are well beyond their goal.

I use Duet Display for a second screen so often that I went ahead and backed the Kickstarter campaign as this looks as if it will be a much better solution. The downside is that it won't ship until May, 2018.

Hi Rick,

 

I bookmarked it last week, and was going to tell you about it. Glad you posted it already. When you get one, tell us about whether it is as good as advertised - no lag. If so, it would be my ultimate desktop/iPad mobile solution.

 

Regards,

 

Michel

Hey Rick,

At least this will coincide with external GPU support coming in the spring of 2018, and make it available to more Mac users. See https://www.apple.co...iew/#footnote-3.

which will allow you to use your iPad as a wireless second screen for your Mac. There are software solutions that do this...


I suggest you avoid air display 2 by avatron software, really not impressed with it.
