Laptops are not ergonomic designs and we know that. There are several kinds of adjustments available to improve the design like stands and detachable screens. What I did not come across is a detachable screen with a stand to hold it in place.
The problem with stands is that although they elevate the laptop to eye level, the keyboard elevates with it making it difficult to type. Similarly, the detachable screens have nothing to hold them in place.
According to the idea, the screen will be detachable and held in place using a flexible metal tube. The metal tube can bear the weight of the screen and is also flexible so that you can adjust the height of the screen. The metal tube can either be detachable or it can be fitted in the laptop design (probably behind the screen). I have made a design (the cover image) resembling the idea.
I would like to invite you to help me improve it.

I used to think about this a lot while I was a digital nomad. I experimented with:
- external USB monitors
I usually had 2 additional monitors with me, positioned on either side of the laptop. The image featured above is not mine.
2. Pocket sized computer such as intel NUC
combined with a lightweight thin monitor (or a few) that can be positioned anyway you like.
3. Using the TV as the monitor with either a laptop, a pocket-sized computer or even the smartphone.
4. All-in-one computer, where the computer's hardwere is embedded in the monitor itself. You then place it anywhere you want and use a wifi keyboard/mouse.
5. dual screen laptop
I haven't seen this since the old Acer Iconia. It was my favorite travel computer. I opened it like a book so that both displays were positioned vertically, then used a wifi keyboard/mouse to work with
