RollTop Laptop Concept -Coolest Rollable Future Laptop Concept

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!

ALSO CHECK the Obento Note Modular Laptop Concept and the Fujitsu LifeBook 2013 Multi-Device Laptop Concept we featured earlier.

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.
