In a USPTO filing entitled 'Electronic Device With Glass Housing Member' Apple describes a computer with a glass display that curves down to house the keyboard.
An electronic device may include a glass housing member that includes an upper portion defining a display area, a lower portion defining an input area, and a transition portion joining the upper portion and the lower portion and defining a continuous, curved surface between the upper portion and the lower portion. The electronic device may include a display coupled to the glass housing member and configured to provide a visual output at the display area. The electronic device may include an input device coupled to the glass housing member and configured to detect inputs at the input area. The electronic device may include a support structure coupled to the glass housing member and configured to support the computing device.
LetsGoDigital and ConceptCreator used the patent's images to render a concept of what this device might actually look like in real life:
Together with the talented Dutch designer Jermaine Smit - aka Concept Creator - LetsGoDigital has decided to bring this special desktop PC to life by turning the patented design into a 3D render animation. In the video animation below you can see what a full glass iMac Pro would look like. The thin, stylish glass design would be a real eye-catcher in many living rooms and offices and would certainly meet today's design standards.
Check out the video below and let us know what you think of the concept in the comments!
