"Buy a bigger screen ? ".  Not necessary.  I have come up with a workaround.

  • Turn the display on it's side and change it to Portrait.
    • If it's a laptop:
      • Users would need to learn how to type one handed as the keyboard would be vertical.
      • A gimbal mount might be required if there was more than one user and one of them was "sinister".
        • A hand crank or hydraulic actuator mounted on the side and working through a planetary gear unit would allow users to rotate the display 180° to make it ambidextrous.  This could be built from printed parts.
    • If it's a desktop:
      • Turn up the screen resolution.
      • Purchase a Resolution Reverser like the modern one shown below.  (Free shipping from Amazon).

That would work until some random contributor adds another 8 or 9 plugins and you run out of room again.

I'll start on the "Rotation Device" design.  The potential market for these could be huge.

Will you need the "right hand" configuration?  (Only having two end-point stops would make it simpler.)

Also, how do you want the rotation mechanism powered?  I'm thinking Diesel but a Flux Capacitor might work.
