Laptop or a canvass? Macbook Touch is a concept design by Tommaso Gecchelin. Concept art is also referred to as visual development and/or concept design. Here is i think a very cool concept.Â Would be very useful for designers to showcase the designs when you do your presentations to client, plus the ease and beauty of having a flexible computer rocks.
Gecchelin reasons if Apple were to go small, flexibility may be more important than hard rigidness – a trend current Apple laptops buck because theyâ€™re in favor of unibody construction. Flexible OLED technology may be the key because it can provide the rich color and resolution density needed for a smaller screen without being a power hog and resists damage by its malleable nature. The thinnest screens now are barely 8mm thick and can fold like a piece of paper.
The core of this concept is a technology he calls iSpine. Like the spine of a book, the tech avoid excessive compression on the screen, yet allows the laptop to sit in multiple viewing positions. Go from a normal laptop with screen and touchscreen board – to a large widescreen canvas for drawing, presentation or movie watching. To keep everything minimal, ports like power, the mini display, and additional USB are externalized on a â€œMagic Dockâ€ to keep most of the laptop slim and clean of an array of holes and plugs.
