Margi - Display-to-Go
Need dual monitors for your work or presentations? Margi's PCCard adapter lets you add a second display to your Win98 laptop or PC. The $249 device is powered by a 64-bit graphics chip with 2Mb memory and connects to the latest digital projectors and flat panels via a supplied VESA/PanelLink cable. Or, use the optional VGA cable for analog displays.

Margi - Theater-to-Go
Theater-to-Go packages Margi's DVD-to-Go PCCard DVD player with an i-glasses personal video visor to create a home theater away from home. Carry these along with a DVD-equipped laptop, and you can choose your own, personal in-flight movie with better than CD stereo sound and a virtual big-screen picture.


Matrox - Millennium G400 DualHead
Think of this high-performance graphics card as a cheap monitor "upgrade" and more. The G400 DualHead is a fast, single slot 3D accelerator that expands your virtual desktop to include a second monitor or (get this) a TV. This allows for neat tricks like being able to watch DVD on one monitor while working in the other. Or, you can use a TV in "magnifying glass" mode to look at details shown on your primary desktop.


Wizcom - QuickLink Pen
A marker-sized optical scanner with built-in OCR capability that fits in your shirt pocket. Think of it as a smart highlighter that can read and store 1000 pages worth of text scanned from business cards or passages from textbooks and then transmits them all to your PC or laptop. Read our review of Wizcom's related product, Quicktionary.
