When you sit down in front of your computer to work you want to know you are working not only with a well tuned machine but too with a stylish unit to aid you in your design endeavours. I can think of no better example of that than the yet to be released Fujitsu lifebook. Come 2013 I am sure designers the world over will be clambering for this all in one, dare I say it, piece of art. The design is so sleek and the functionality, appears to me at least to be otherworldly. It contains every device the modern designer could need, from the laptop functionality itself to a tablet, a smartphone, presumably running on windows or android and a camera, a true all in one to aid you in your every design need.
How about a revolutionary concept / technology today, instead of the usual rumors and speculations? Prashant Chandra proposes a beautiful Fujitsu laptop concept, that also incorporates a tablet, phone and camera. Dubbed the Lifebook and seen as a concept from 2013, this original unit is what they call a modular device.
You can detach its camera and use it as a digital camera, detach the tablet and use it as such or attach it and use it as the laptop’s keyboard or touch drawing area. There’s also a phone that you can insert into a special area and I guess that this device incorporates the CPU and storage space used by the laptop. The Fujitsu laptop may be bulky, but it’s still an interesting and original design you might want to keep an eye on.
I particularly like the idea of having both a tablet and a laptop in a single gadget and connected through a 16 pin docking area. Data is available right away and the device is sensed immediately, also adding some new features to the laptop. I imagine that some virtual game controls will also add to the experience, once they’re displayed on the slate’s screen. Would you buy a Fujitsu modular laptop like this one?
