Ever wondered what a smartphone, a digital camera and a tablet all combined into one would look like? Well, Lifebook might just be the answer to your question! Sounds like a dream come true for all techies, doesn’t it? Well, it gets better.
What is it?
Designed by Prashant Chandra, an industrial designer from India, the Lifebook is a concept laptop featuring numerous gadgets such as a compact camera, a smartphone and a tablet all rolled into one.
All three of these gadgets can be integrated into the body of the main laptop.
- While the smartphone acts as a music player, the digital camera functions as a webcam.
- The tablet is attached to a slot to transform it into a fully touch-based QWERTY keyboard which is very convenient for those on the go. Once detached, it becomes a tablet again – perfect for playing games or for using it as a sketchpad.
- All these gadgets can be charged and synced at the same time, saving both time and energy.
So the question which now comes to mind is what sets the Fujitsu Lifebook apart from other concept laptops such as the Intel Nikiski and the Bent Book? The Fujitsu Lifebook utilises the principle of “shared hardware”.
Currently, a lot of good hardware is wasted when we make use of separate devices. Most often there are cases of lots of repetition of data and storage. For example, even if a person has some songs stored in his music player, the same amount of storage space has to be blocked on his computer’s hard drive. The Lifebook offers an efficient solution to this problem.
Though the Lifebook concept is not yet fully developed, there is no doubt that like the ASUS Padfone, this new innovation is poised to become a reality in the near future.
