Flexible Laptop of The Future: Roll With It!

Just saw this in an e-mail from my father-in-law. Thank you sir!! BEHOLDDDD: The Flexible LED Computer!


On November 28th, 2008 I wrote an article Mobile Phone Flexible OLED Displays = More Room For Ads “OLED’s are easy to make – all you need is a special printer – and can be used in television screens, computer displays, small, portable system screens such as cell phones and PDAs, advertising, information and indication.” It looks like we’ve come a long way since then…but where’s the real thing?

Since this is an animation, we must rely on a simple YouTube Description for details: “The device of the flexible display allows a new concept in notebook design growing out of the traditional bookformed laptop into unfurling and convolving portable computer. By virtue of the OLED-Display technology and a multi touch screen the utility of a laptop computer with its weight of a mini-notebook and screen size of 13 inch easily transforms into the graphics tablet, which with its 17-inch flat screen can be also used as a primary monitor. On top of everything else all computer utilities from power supply through the holding belt to an interactive pen are integrated in Rolltop. This is really an all-in-one gadget.

This was all made possible b/c of our little friend, OLED! They have many  significant benefits over the traditional Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD): Their flexible, they draw far less power, can operate longer on the same charge and can be much thinner than an LCD panel.  Just think…your battery will last longer, you’re screen can be flexible and skinnier than other models.

For More Information:

The site is in German, however you can still navigate around easily:  http://www.orkin-design.de/. Looking forward to the real thing!
