The guys at Rolltop, a concept for the next generation of laptops and tablets, believe the way we work with our devices needs a serious appraisal. Laptop bags are simply too cumbersome and require an assortment of extra stuff like chargers, etc. The Rolltop team wants to change this.
What they’ve got in mind is a scroll that contains all the accouterments in a laptop. Good for them most of the technology to realize their particular vision is now available. Forgiving the confused grammar, below is the mission-vision of the Rolltop guys as articulated in the official site:
Rolltop is a portable computer development concept for designer, architect and everyone, who would like to have a gadget, which, from an aesthetic standpoint alone, certainly hits the mark. By virtue of the OLED-Display technology and a multitouchscreen the utility of a laptop computer with its weight of a mini-notebook and screen size of 13 inch easily transforms into the graphics tablet, which with its 17-inch flat screen can be also used as a primary monitor due to the support attached to the back of the screen.
The device of the flexible display allows a new concept in notebook design growing out of the traditional “bookformed” laptop into unfurling and convolving portable computer. Rolltop incorporates both latest high-tech devices and a new brand design techniques into a computer that will increase the quality and productivity of the designers work. On top of everything else no laptop bag needed – all computer utilities from an interactive pen through power supply to the holding belt are integrated in Rolltop. This is really an all-in-one gadget.
