Keeping you on track and on time, Displio is a small, lightweight portable display for you home, office or desk space. Displio sits on your counter, alerting you to emails, stocks, social media, or any other notifications. Using the same E-Ink Screen as the Amazon Kindle, Displio is simple and easy to read. Using the WebClip feature, anyone can create their own Displio widgets. It requires WiFi to work, so a mobile hotspot, office, or home space is the best place to use this display.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Since you only have to rotate it on its side to change widgets, Displio could be a great tool for someone with limited dexterity. It is so simple to use, it is easy to see why it was a successful crowd funded project.
Having a visual notification tool is really handy. Rather than searching for my phone or pulling out a computer, I can easily see any updates. The size is a big factor for me. I like that Displio is small enough to throw in my purse so I can use it between home and work.
