Presented as a concept roll up laptop back in 2011, the RollTop 2.0 still still looks cool enough to make me want one ASAP!
The device was created by the German design shop Orkin Design and presents a multi-device that changes shapes based on the task it needs to accomplish. The RollTop 2.0 can be rolled up, just like a Yoga mat, for easy transportation, can be used as a 13-in laptop (the bottom part of the device transforms in a virtual keyboard and tracking device) and a 17-in tablet with stylus or touch control or an external screen for other PC’s!
The RollTop 2.0 concept sports a flexible OLED screen which allows the device to transform from transportation mode to laptop, tablet or external screen and a center column which holds most connectivity options such us USB and LAN ports, an internal speaker, a webcam, the rechargeable battery as well as a power adapter for charging the device. While not in use, the RollTop wraps around the center-column for easy transportation and storage.
The initial RollTop concept was presented back in 2009 and it was updated to the 2.0 version in 2011. Unfortunately, since than, there are not many news about this cool project. Check out the videos in the post about the first and second versions of the RollTop and let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

The Digital Dudz T-Shirts are some of the coolest tees I ever saw! Basically, the guys from Digital Dudz took some regular cotton t-shirts, they printed them with amazingly realistic designs and, to make things look even more impressive, you can use your iPhone or Android device to play special built animations which bring your tee to life! Impressively well done!!!
So how exactly does this work? All Digital Dudz shirts and costumes feature a secret chest sleeve where you slide your smartphone and play the animation to scare people around. The chest sleeve is well built into the t-shirt, it’s secured with Velcro to hold your phone safe and it’s well disguised, so people around you won’t notice it unless you show them the trick. The pre-built animations can be downloaded to your iPhone (iOs 6 and over) and Android (2.3 and over) via the free Digital Dudz apps and can be easily played or paused by a simple screen touch.
The Morph Digital Dudz tees can be used with most iPhone and Android smartphones up to 6-in, including the Galaxy Note series and the iPhone 6 Plus and are available in multiple models including some cool zombie designs and Marvel’s Captain America and Iron Man superheroes. Check them out and let me know which one is your favorite! I put my money on the Frantically Moving Eyeball T-Shirt.

Working on a laptop all day long it’s not an easy job. If you’re one of those professionals always on the go and the coffee shop around the corner is your preferred office, you must know how tiring and difficult for your body is to work countless hours in an uncomfortable position. While in a regular office you can use a laptop stand and external keyboards and mice to improve your working position, things are not that easy while on the road.
A while back we featured the Flio laptop stand which allows road warriors to improve their posture when working on the go. While the Flio is still our preferred portable laptop stand when not in the office, there are people out-there who need an en even more raised laptop position to ergonomically work in improvised offices. For those people, and not only, we present you the Roost Portable Laptop Stand.
The Roost was initially designed for 13″, 15″ and 17″ MacBook Pro laptops, but it’s also compatible with 13″-17″ non-Apple notebooks. A full list of compatible models is available here. The minimalist laptop stand is handmade in Detroit, US, it’s made of super-light Carbon Fiber and Delrin (the same material used in guitar picks), weights only 6.5oz (183g) and has a load capacity of 132+ lbs (that’s about 60kg). The Roost raises your laptop screen about 10″ from the desk (that’s about 25 cm) and requires an external keyboard and mouse for usage.
