A Different Kinda Fold

The Feno is a folding notebook. Typically we expect a hinge between the display and keyboard, but the Feno has an additional hinge within the display! This not only makes the size more compact but also explores future use of flexible OLED screens. The pièce de résistance is the pop-out mouse! Just pop it out and you are good to go! Brilliant!

    Now that is a cool concept!! Only thing is would there not be a sort or crease on the screen where its been folded? or at least some sort of mark?

    Besides that i think its ace!

      • krevproductions says:

        And the fact that you avoided the use of capital letters when you started a sentence and didn't use puncuation isn't?
        I was joking, that's all, stop being so uptight.

    No idea how technically feasible it is, but that's one cool piece of design.

    Very cool idea – but, is there enough storage, enough power for photographers to edit digital images. Also, it could never be a MAC platform because Apple would never release the rights. Windows there is no issue.

  • @TheAlp_ says:

    its a nice idea with the screen but when i first looked at it i actually thought the place to the right of the keyboard was a mousepad which i thought was great, if you need a mouse give it a decent size.

  • Patrícia says:

    Does anyone know what´s the size of the screen, which operational system does it use and how much does it cost?

    cool design, very minimal however in the other images the cd drive disappears and the fold would make some sort of crease in he screen

  • Problems:
    1. Laptops need a trackpad or nub because there is not always a flat surface for a mouse.
    2. This would wear out the screen very fast.
    3. There's no place to rest your palms while typing.
    4. It would be top heavy and fall backwards because there isn't as much weight or surface area in the bottom part as normal laptops.

    I like the compact size but it seems to sacrifice too much to be workable.

    Visually looks OK. If the screen is solid, definitely will have a crease. A flexible membrane might do the trick!

    not a cd . . . rather, a five-layer odvd . . . allows for fifth-dimensional string-level displacements.

  • Vic says:

    How much will this cost me??

    Windows anything beats Mac OS X, Apple computers are shit and extremely overpriced.
