Luna Display is a company that intends on turning your iPad into a wireless second display so you can get more work done without spending any extra money. You know, except for the money you'll spend on Luna Display.
Simply plug Luna into your Mac, launch the free app, and the hardware creates a second monitor by extending your Mac desktop to your iPad. Available for Mini DisplayPort or USB-C, it sets up in seconds and instantly works with your existing Wi-Fi. If Wi-Fi isn't available, it also works via USB.
It's much more than just a second screen — Luna Display acts as a complete extension to your Mac, allowing you to use it directly from your iPad with full support for external keyboards, Apple Pencil, and touch interactions. It fully turns your Mac into a touchable device, allowing you to pinch, pan, and tap the screen.
The hardware requires a Mac running macOS 10.10, Yosemite (or later). For optimal performance, Luna recommends these configurations: MacBook Air (2012 and later), MacBook Pro (2012 and later), Mac mini (2012 and later), iMac (2012 and later), Mac Pro (Late 2013).
The company is currently crowdfunding in a Kickstarter campaign and has already raised over $413,000 of its $30,000 goal. Check out more info here.
