At an event in New York today, the company showed off its idea of the future of “personal computing” with an image of a bendable laptop with a flexible display; a built-in keyboard; and even the signature ThinkPad pointing stick, or mouse nub — whatever you want to call it. With this concept, most of the interaction would happen over voice commands or a stylus. Lenovo says that this concept would be achieved through “advanced materials” and “new screen technologies.” That’s not very specific.Now let me make it clearer, the laptop won’t have hinges. It’s just plain and foldable. Just as a piece of paper or cardboard sheet. I hope you get the concept now. Well, while the rest of the world are still anxiously waiting for the release of foldable phones as highlighted two years ago, Lenovo could surprise us by making it realistic with a Lappy.
Meanwhile, if you are wondering why there is no trackpad, well, the laptop offers 3 other means of input. There’s the standard touch screen, a stylus or pencil, and voice input — the voice input will allow you to completely control the laptop. Amazing right?
Note that this device is not yet realized or available as it’s still a concept waiting to be put into practice. But trust our Chinese tech gurus, they can make this happen soon.
