Laptop Concept Feels Like a Real Notebook

Designed by Kim Min Seok, this Fujitsu laptop concept explores the world of bendable AMOLED screens to bring a realistic notebook experience to laptop computing. Utilizing a bendable design with dual touch screen interfaces, the 'Real Notebook' offers users the pleasurable feel of flipping through pages in an actual notebook.

In its regular laptop position, the lower touch screen acts as a virtual keyboard interface while the upper acts as a standard display. When users tilt the laptop on its side, it'll activate the notebook function where users will be able to utilize bending angles to search through music, data, and photos at varying speeds. Although this may not be the most practical of laptop designs, it certainly would be an interesting experience to flip through one of these notebooks while reading an e-book.

    Its neat but why would anyone want to do this, when they could just click the search button and make the computer do the looking for them?

    Why is it that when people create new technology, they think it has to replicate old technology, instead of find BETTER ways to use the technology. This seems rather useless to me, once past the gimmiky wow factor. I dont wan't my $2,000 laptop to behave like a 99 cent notebook, when I can go get a notebook for 99 cents and use it as was intended.

    Also, as a side note to Tom's: Please fix commenting in IE9, I really hate having to switch broswers just to leave a comment on this site.

    Apple certainly banks on that. Even if it's not really that feasible of a use for the device, it's still a pretty neat tech demo.

    Wow, what a stupid idea. This is far less convenient and efficient than what people currently do. Bending the screen to scroll, seriously?

    Could work for college. Dependent on pricing, this + e-textbooks = textbook(s) with you at all times for reference?
    Too bad there will probably be a price premium when/if it made.

  • OK, I feel some negativity in here. Notebook, as in the old paper one, not netbook. If you do a lot of ebook/PDF reading I can see why it could be useful. Just chill on the sofa and read it like it's a real book. I for one like this new tech coming to digital screens.
