15.6-inch Computer Screen is Powered by a USB Port

If you are the type of notebook or netbook user that wants a larger screen when you are at home, but you don’t have a video output or spare power outlet available, you might be interested in one of the USB-powered screens that are on the market. The thing is that most USB powered screens have to be small to be able to run off the power the USB port offers.

A new screen has turned up from a Japanese company called Green House that can get the 5W it needs to operate directly from the USB port along with the connectivity for video. The big difference in the GH-USD16K is that the thing is 15.6-inches making it the biggest USB powered LCD that I have ever laid eyes on.

The screen has a resolution of 1366 x 768 and a contrast ratio of 400:1. Brightness is rated at 220cd/m2 and you can plug as many as six of these into a single computer. The price in Japan works out to $215 here in the US. There is no word on when or if this screen will ship outside of Japan.
