Gizmos and devices like the iPad, tablets and notebooks offer the latest in technological convenience possible. Technology and personal electronic devices have progressed and developed at such a fast pace that it is no wonder that things like Rolltop Laptop are becoming more than concepts; ideas that are being given shape and will someday replace the traditional act of reading hardcopy paper. For many people, reading the newspaper in the morning or rolling it up and taking it with them to work is a joyous task, others like their news rolled up but much more compact and in soft copy form. Rolltop Laptop symbolize exactly that; a laptop device that rolls up just like the newspaper and can fit your handbag, briefcase, coat pocket and anything in between.
Promised to be one of the most used, compact, ergonomic and easy to use devices in history of electronic development, Rolltop Laptop promises to be your reading partner, provider of the latest news and updates and your co-worker in times of need. Originally designed by Orkin Design Company, this fresh concept has enough probability to replace traditional personal computers entirely and laptops largely. While it weighs as much as a mini-book, the Rolltop Laptop comes with OLED-technology and a multi-touch screen that does away with the hassle of using keypads and combines the flexibility of using hands with the ease of navigation.
Once in the rolled up position, the Rolltop Laptop will take the perfect shape of a rolled up newspaper but once this thing is actually rolled out, there is a lot that it can do to impress all kinds of technology savvy experts. As far as the hardware is concerned, there is very little of it to speak of (or at least what you can see!). You do not need to carry external cable cords and battery charging devices because the Rolltop Laptop comes attached to a holding belt that actually holds the helps you carry the device and allows you to use it as an electric cable for charging purposes whenever you need it. The base of the Rolltop Laptop is a circular and long case that holds the Rolltop Laptop wrapped around itself. Once you roll out the device, you can detach this base and have it stand next to the rolled out device. A cord that you can pull out of the base connects to the main Rolltop Laptop and the base also acts as the web camera and loudspeaker of the device.
The Rolltop Laptop itself comes complete with volume control, USB ports as well as a LAN port. Once you roll out the Rolltop Laptop just like a yoga mat, it is entirely up to you whether you want to keep it rolled out flat or steeped upwards. If you want to use the Rolltop Laptop flat out then you will get a 17-inch screen to watch movies and videos on or simply browse around using a pin inserted inside the Rolltop Laptop. If you wish to use the Rolltop Laptop at an incline, you simply pull the upper part of the screen towards yourself to resemble something like a notebook or a laptop with a 13-inch screen and a virtual keyboard on the lower end. This ultimate feature, not found in any other electronic device gives you the complete control of where, how and in what capacity you wish to use this device in. To give this laptop-like position some support, there is a pull out support and stylus pen included.
While the Rolltop Laptop is yet a concept, the German company Orkin Design is fully dedicated to bring this concept to life in the near future. The motive of the development of this device is set in line with laptop users’ usability and functionality with the ultimate goal of bringing all kinds of electronic needs of the average person into one single device. At the moment, Orkin Design is running some tests on the device and working out some issues and kinks in order to ensure that the final product that is sold in the market truly combines the best combination of hardware and software applications that is possible. Physically, the Rolltop Laptop will not weigh anything more than a mini notebook and once it all rolled up, it will be 11 inches long and have a diameter of 3.26 inches.
