Looks cute and all, but by the time that thing becomes available as anything more than a prototype, my smartphone will have a beefier processor, better graphics, and more storage. It'll also be cheaper and won't require me to carry a tube purse thing that has to be setup on a desk.

Hey I described one of these as a computer I wanted. I forget what article I was posting on but I was upset that you couldn't just roll out your display and roll out your keyboard. Weather my ideas are just logical and people were already designing these things or they were inspired by my post. 
Cool thought huh? I think this is like the second or third device that has popped up like that.

As much as I'd love to compute with my thermos than with a standard rectangular laptop, I'd have to toss this one into the 'looks pretty but that's about it' end of the techno pool.  I dunno, maybe Q can turn it into some kind of computer/rocket launcher in the next Bond film.

I would totally get it. Looks awesome. It could also be like one of those poster/portfolio tubes that you sling on yer back.

That Gordon would be able to asess the feasibility of such a product, being your resident futurist and all.

If this thing had a touchscreen, it would be amazing. I suppose if it gets made it'll be Atom powered.

It wouldn't be a laptop then, because of the keyboard, you would need a desk...

 

And... first

 

 

EDIT: Or second...

what exactly prevents this from fitting on your lap?

Seems like it would roll out and fall.

Also the keyboard looks like flexible plastic.

Now I know what kind of prosthesis (augmentation?) I would get If I ever lose an arm.
