Rolltop – The Future Of Laptops

The tablet computer was supposed to replace laptop. Apple has tried to position the iPad in a totally new category rather than a laptop replacement. It is to be seen weather such an attempt will succeed.

Orkin Design, a design firm in Germany, has designed a concept tablet computer that can be rolled up and carried like a shoulder handbag. The large multi-touch screen can be unrolled and used as laptop and tablet computer. The computer features USB ports, webcam, stylus and everything today’s computers have.

The rolltop is featured as having a flexible OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode). Its multi-touch screen can be modified into a 13″ screen laptop with a virtual keyboard and when you wish to view any video or movie, the virtual keyborad can also be transformed as a part of the screen to have a  17″ screen monitor with a stand attached to it. When it’s not in use, it can be easily rolled into a 11″ tube and is highly portable.

  • Flexible Screen and Keypad
