Monitor-Rotating Devices

Focus-Dynamics' 'Rotato' Changes a Screen's Orientation with One Touch

— August 11, 2015 — Tech
The 'Rotato' by Focus-Dynamics is a USB-powered accessory for computer monitors that makes it possible to change the orientation of a screen just by pressing one key on a keyboard.

The motorized accessory is mounted between a monitor and a mount stand, so that the rotation and stand adjustments are made automatically. In order to accommodate monitors of different sizes, there are different mounting heights offered. For whatever reason the setup isn't installed correctly and there is an obstruction, Rotato will automatically return to its former resting position. Most impressively, this is all done with a USB connection, so that no other power sources or cables are needed.

Considering the ease of being able to flip a screen's direction on smartphone and tablets, it's not a surprise that the world of desktop computers is trying to catch up.
Trend Themes
1. Motorized Screen Rotation - The Rotato demonstrates the trend of motorized screen rotation, offering convenience and ease of use for computer users.
2. Usb-powered Accessories - The Rotato's USB-powered feature showcases the trend of increasing use of USB connections to power and control devices.
3. Desktop Computer Adaptation - The Rotato addresses the trend of desktop computer adaptation by introducing a device that allows users to easily change the orientation of their screens.
Industry Implications
1. Computer Peripherals - The computer peripherals industry can benefit from developing and marketing motorized screen rotation accessories such as the Rotato.
2. Electronics - The electronics industry can explore opportunities in the USB-powered accessories market, following the example set by the Rotato.
3. Technology - The technology industry can capitalize on the trend of desktop computer adaptation by creating innovative solutions, like the Rotato, that enhance user experience.
