Why Two?

Why Two?

Do we really need the tablet and the smartphone to be two different entities? If you ask these trio designers their answer is no! The Part is the coexistence of a smartphone and a tablet as one whole device. You can remove the phone for individual use, however together they tango even better!

Tablet High On Felt!

Tablet High On Felt!

The HiLo is quite an interesting concept; it is a 10” OLED Tablet with a wireless felt keyboard. Now the thing about the keyboard is that it’s styled as a jacket to hold the tablet. At the same time it features fused (hot pressed – embedded circuitry) keys on the outside. Naturally, you use the keyboard as desired, however I’m getting a kick out of the casual interaction between the protective jacket and the tablet. It’s just too awesome!

Compact Disc is Mouse-ish

Compact Disc is Mouse-ish

One of the things with product design is that we need to let the experts figure out the “How” and concentrate on the design solution at hand. So when it comes to the question of how to make a computer mouse compact, portable yet feel like the true-blue desktop version, we’ll leave the figuring of technology to the techies and concentrate on a compact disc-esque mouse (disk+Mouse) that sits in the laptop tray when not needed. And cones up to a 3-D full grip version when required. Brilliant, if you ask me!

The Real Notebook

The Real Notebook

The Real Notebook is a laptop concept that delves into the advantages of bendable AMOLED screens. It gives the notebook design a push in the direction of actually flipping through a book. You have to agree that we are always at looking to make technology devices more realistic and natural, this notebook is perfect synergy towards the efforts.

Oxygenated Notebook

Oxygenated Notebook

The Plantbook is a notebook concept that takes a leaf out of the life of a bamboo plant. What I mean is that the battery charging system is inspired by the water-soaking abilities of the bamboo!

Split Personality Notebook

Split Personality Notebook

Of all the words in the dictionary, you never associate elegance with Notebooks. But a look at the Split Concept, and I’m sure you will agree with me. Über elegant with a chic cover, the notebook is split into the various components like a tablet screen, independent keyboard, mouse and reading remote pen. All assemble together to become one great notebook or can be used individually. I really dig the sexy styling that Jung Dae Hoon has created. Not many can come up with such tasteful looking devices.

Precise Orientation

Precise Orientation

One of the biggest advantages of a laptop is its portability feature. Using this as its premise, here is a very sleek version of how we should be really using a digital notebook. Ironic that it’s a leaf out of the journal kind, the Anderson’s main USP is the practical way of handling the book. Dual hinge system makes it possible to use the notebook in portrait and landscape mode. Realistic and do-able, I’d like one Anderson just for me!

Computer All Rolled Up

Computer All Rolled Up

A day will come when computers can be rolled up like newspapers, and concepts like Roll Me will make complete sense. Here’s why, it features e-paper nanotechnology roll-able display, making it light and portable. With minimal components and built-in cooling systems, the computer is highly ergonomic and intuitive. To “round” it off, it’s powered by SolarRoll – a flexible solar panel that can be stowed within the hollow shaft of the computer.

Sun-kissed Ready Notebook!

Sun-kissed Ready Notebook!

I am going to ignore the fact that this sexy looking, clear polycarbonate laptop is inspired by light. I am also going to forget that it features a transparent touch-keyboard. I’m only fixated on the Double Solar Panels (one on top and the other under the keypad) and the possibility of having a laptop that needs NO WIRES! Yes, even for charging it! Someone, anyone Fujitsu…please make the Luce!
