Could the future of ultraportable laptops look more like this roll-up notebook? The concept design uses minimal materials, OLED technology for the screen, and hopes to be an all-in-one gadget that can sweep aside the need to have a laptop, e-reader, tablet and other devices.
"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."
We've seen a few flexible gadget concepts come up, and it might be the case that something like this, which offers everything users want in one tiny package (and likely energy efficient package thanks to the OLED display), could be in our future. Of course, a big question is how long this device will last, since it doesn't look easily repairable. If the lifespan is long enough, then it has the potential to be an interesting green gadget.
