• Futurism: The digital-roll laptop
  • A glimpse of the future, maybe? The concept of a roll laptop definitely 'has legs' for me.

    Thanks to Gizmodiva for flagging this one - designer Hao Hua envisaging a future laptop design, as "digital roll".

    Short of speech-control solving the problem, there is surely always going to be a barrier for further miniaturisation of input and display. After all, the input keys must be of a certain size for the human finger to operate....

    Flexible screens and input devices are an obvious solution, as they can take up less space than they occupy when fully extended. A very logical 21st century version of the fold-out keyboard, it seems to me.

    Where can I place my pre-order?
