Computer concepts that you shouldn't get your hopes up for

Razor Switchblade Portable Gaming PC Concept

Unveiled at CES 2011, this portable gaming device is a realistic concept that we may see hit shelves in the next couple years. From the peripherals company Razor, this computer’s dynamic keyboard changes its layout depending on the game you’re playing.

Sony Nextep Wristband Computer Concept

Here’s one that could be categorized as “not so realistic”. Straight out of a Sci-Fi movie, this wristband OLED touchscreen computer concept from Sony is targeted for 2020. I wouldn’t get your hopes up, though.

InOne Sophisticated All-In-One Computer

“The InOne is truly an all-in-one computer. 22″ screen, keyboard, touchpad, speakers and a digital tablet are all built into one TRONtastic package. Everything is wirelessly connected and the tablet displays what your write and draw so you don’t have to look up at the screen. Interesting design, especially the keyboard.”

Tablet With Keyboard That Becomes A Mobile Phone

This touch PC becomes a tablet when the keyboard is detached. What’s more is that the detached keyboard folds up to become an Android Phone. The tablet itself could run off Chrome OS or Android. A pretty neat idea, but unlikely that we’ll be seeing a device like this anytime soon.

GLOOO Computer Globe

Keep in touch with your friends around the world with this globe computer concept. Software for a device such as this could easily be made using mapping technology like Google Earth, however is there mass market appeal for such a device? Probably not. Very cool none-the-less.

  • I don’t know why the keyboard flipping into an android device is so far fetched I wouldn’t say it could come out in a year but definitely two or three years with technology advances… the globe is dumb and so is sony wristband why would I want to wear that it looks like something from bey blade or yu’gi’ho….
