Did you ever think how laptops will look like in 20 years from now?
One alternative is based on modular gadgets like the Obento Note and the Fujitsu Lifebook 2013 we featured earlier. Another way off seeing things is virtual projection based technology. Imagine a virtual input system like the CTX Keyboard connected to a small PC unit (something like the size of a watch) out-putting image on a laser projector virtual touchscreen like the Light Blue… Sky is the limit …
Today, we’ll check another cool direction for tomorrow’s laptops – the Feno Foldable Laptop designed back in 2008 by Niels van Hoof. This alternative sounds very close to today’s reality due to advancements in OLED flexible displays.
So, what we have here is a huge 17″ screen that folds around the main laptop unit to save space and ease transport. The unit features a classic keyboard (which is nice to see and will dramatically improve the typing speed), a pop-up mouse and a CD/DVD unit. I know, I know, the CD/DVD unit is obsolete, but remember the concept was drawn back in 2008 when a CD-less laptop was almost inconceivable.
What’s your take on the future of laptops? Do you think the laptop as we know it will disappear leaving it’s place for a new breed of mobile computing or will it simply evolve into something more transportable and practical from an usage point of view? Let’s hear your comments below ….
