Probably the most interesting laptop I’ve seen in a VERY long time, the DuoFlip isn’t your traditional workstation. Designed with an innovative hinge detail, the DuoFlip opens in TWO ways (hence the name), one like a traditional laptop with a backward hinge, and another, like a book with a hinge on the side.
This innovative detail makes the DuoFlip a designer’s best friend, allowing them to use the laptop in the regular sense, as well as a sketching tablet when needed. The two hinges are built in a way that’s definitely one-of-a-kind (you’ll get the detail if you look a little closely), giving the laptop its ability to switch between traditional workstation and massive drawing-pad… a pretty great feature for designers, artists, architects, and other creatives. The hinge detail also packs a stylus into it, allowing you to access it while the laptop is open in its sideways format. The 13.3 inch screen serves as a great, large drawing surface, giving you a product that’s larger than tablets, and more portable (and hopefully cheaper) than a Wacom Cintiq. Slated for a 2019 launch, it’ll be interesting to see the kind of power the DuoFlip packs. If it’s even got a decent GPU, display, and battery life, it should seriously be a great option for designers!
The DuoFlip Laptop is a winner of the iF Design Award for the year 2019.
