Bookshelf PC by Sungho Son & Scott Shim

The “Bookshelfa concept computer eliminates most common problems in the multi-media entertainment business today; digital content copyrights and inconvenient accessibility. The “Bookshelf” operates with add on hardware attachments supplied by digital service providers which controls the copyright issues but still accommodate convenience and portability that is expected from computer users of today. As the users acquire hardware attachments from digital service providers of their choice, the “Bookshelf” expands into a multi -media library. Each individual hardware attachment is configured to download and play contents and also moderate copyrights. The concept envisions a new infra-structure of digital media and how consumers will interact with them in the near future. Addition to its’ stationary use, hardware attachments may be pulled off the shelf to be used elsewhere.

    That’s a neat design, but I’m not too happy about the copyright control.

    Apple computer and Frog Design came up with this almost exact same concept long ago. You can see a pic of their version in the Appledesign book that came out back in 1997. http://www.amazon.com/Appledesign-Apple-Industrial-Design-Group/dp/1888001259/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1232401325&sr=8-2

    I like the concept very much, the idea of simple expandability and the packaging in to something I would love to have sat on my shelf.
    (I cant find the apple concept but will have another look)
