What gadgets do you usually use? A laptop, a tablet, a smartphone and a camera, right? What if I tell you that next year you will be able to get all-in-one gadget that will combine all these devices in it? It sounds like a joke, but it is not. Meet Fujitsu Lifebook 2013, a concept laptop that is to be released in 2013.
Lifebook’s idea belongs to Prashant Chandra who couldn’t put up with the irrational use of hardware and who suggested this concept at a competition held by Fujitsu. The main idea is to make a laptop joining together such gadgets as smartphone, camera, tablet and laptop, their hardware and software solutions into one.
So, how does it work?
First of all it should be mentioned that it is going to be a transformer, e.g. that all parts of can be used separately. Do you need a tablet? Just detach it. The same thing happens with camera and phones.
Unfortunately, the exact specs are not known yet, but we can say where different parts will be situated.
So, tablet part will replace the usual keyboard. Instead of keys you get a QWERTY touch-based board that can also serve as another screen (a great bonus for gamers, btw) and a digital sketchpad for writing with a stylus (it will be convenient, won’t it?).
Digital camera will be placed at front that will allow making video calls, photos, and video shooting. Of course, the camera can be detached as well.
Smartphone part is going to serve as a modem mainly, however, the developers can also make it a way to extend CPU or even ROM and RAM (as it was mentioned, the exact way the laptop will work isn’t revealed).
Besides, there is supposed to be an auto-sync of all data among the devices, e.g. that all the video, pics, music files, docs can be easily transferred from one gadget to another one.
Fujitsu Lifebook 2013 is one of the most expected projects for incoming 2013. And I personally hope that it won’t be left only a concept as the idea is very practical. The only question is how well it will be developed. And of course, the price question remains open.
