I'm curious what's inside the dongle that makes it better than wifi? Is it some kinda hardware accelerator or signal booster?
Haven't dug in, but my thought was it was a form of 'headless ghost' - something that just spits out EDID data so the macbook thinks an external display was plugged in.
see headless ghost: https://www.headlessghost.com , and google around for earlier DIY efforts.
O.M.G! this is what iv being waiting for!!! (i make music and design websites) have being looking at windows 10 tablets recently haha no need now.
wooo im so excited for this, feels like something apple should have done themselves along time ago.
Apple should make this feature out of the box on system level on new iPads Pro/iOS 11/macOS High Sierra
As a duet user, this looks like it adds some features duet is missing. That being said, I'm not sure how I feel about having to be connected to Wi-Fi to have it work.
How would you like it connected? It also supports USB.
Didn't realize that. From the site and video I got the impression it was built around connecting via a wi-fi connection, so I take it back :-P
Found a review of prototype on The Verge: https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/8/23/16184080/astro-hq-luna-turns-ipad-into-wireless-display
Dang, I just recently bought Duet...Might have to get one of these and test it out in comparison.
Nice to see this done properly!
