Foldable MacBook Touch Mockup

Foldable MacBook Touch Mockup

Posted April 30, 2009 at 11:35am by iClarified
A new mockup showcases the amazing designs Apple could achieve by creating an OLED MacBook.

Yanko Design reports on the concept by designer Tommaso Gecchelin:

Gecchelin reasons if Apple were to go small, flexibility may be more important than hard rigidness - a trend current Apple laptops buck because they’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 'Magic Dock' to keep most of the laptop slim and clean of an array of holes and plugs.

They should just be very simple and have a very thin HD touch screen. With a slid out keyboard, (like the wireless one out already) but has a rechargeable flat batter in it raise up. To recharge you would connect with the new usb plug to the HD touch screen. Memory these days are pretty thin and batteries too so this would still make the HD screen itself keep its thinness.

I don't know about you guys but I think typing on a touchscreen keyboard would take a LOT of getting used to.. If this beautiful creation ever comes, I will be one of the first to purchase one.. I am such a whore when it comes to new technology.. maybe thats why Im broke all the time, haha

Thats what I'm talking about ! If you want to make the lid a potential touch pad Wouldn't turn it down but it really isn't necessary Just make it a functional protective cover with a iphone like touch screen I'm so there ! I'll give my dell 9 to the first person I see on the way to the apple store!
