Hey guys, got an interesting question (at least for me). I know that most tablets have some sort of a video/audio out function, where you can hook it up to a monitor and use that for viewing.
I want to know if you can do something similar but different.
I'd be interested in hooking up a tablet PC, and making it work as an additional monitor for my laptop (for artwork and stuff). Is that doable? Or is it easier to buy a device dedicated for that? As this is theoretical (I'm doing my research), the OS does not matter.
There is an app called Air Display (from App Store), that allows you to use the iPad as a display for a Mac or PC. SoldierKnowsBest on YouTube did a review of it

it should be possible but I cant seem to find any apps for it.
though I do have concerns with doing it with a modern tablet as they use low cost IPS panels that are fast to get burn-in's
Other than that concern I don't see why it cant be done, I was done years ago with windows mobile
