Compal has designed a new concept laptop in the form of the Compal DuoFlip which the company has entered into the iF world design awards. As you can see from the images the laptop offers a set of unique features and allows the screen to flip sideways so the computer opens like a book. The specially designed hinge allows you to position the keyboard on the left and the display on the right.
The unique positioning allows you to use a stylus on the screen while still being able to type on the keyboard next to it. “All two in one laptops are portable, lightweight and can convert from a normal laptop to a tablet. But what sets the 13.3 inch DuoFlip apart is its revolutionary, first-of-its-kind hinge breakthrough that allows it to also be flipped open like a book. Superior computing is achieved in laptop mode, but close the lid and with one simple release of the mechanism lock on the top left corner, allow the LCD touch screen to open sideways. Content creators can freely sketch or write with the included stylus, as if working on an oversized drawing pad. Creative exploration has never been easier.”
Unfortunately no information has been released as to whether the concept laptop will ever make the jump from idea into manufacture, so no information on pricing or worldwide availability is currently available. However if the DuoFlip Notebook computer does ever make its way to a consumer device we will keep you up-to-date as always.
