Nerd Bear On Technology: The Rolltop

Technology is constantly changing and developing. Discovering new ideas on how to make things better, stronger, and faster is all about breaking the expectations we've imposed on ourselves. We've become more advanced as a society because nerds like me are never satisfied with what has already been done. I'm addicted to technology. I just see what cool things are possible and continue to explore what new and amazing things we, as humans, can come up with. So since I had tech on the brain, I decided to do some research on what new gadgets will bless us in the future. I came across the Rolltop...yes, I said the Rolltop! It's a brand new style of laptop and tablet rolled into a tube. I was floored to see this beauty.


I mean what genuine nerd wouldn't want this on their desk at home? Just imagine rolling this thing out in front of your friends in order to rub it into your broke friends' faces! You don't want to just to operate it; you could just stare intently at its sleekness and its curves. Only problem about this. is it a real, or is it just a fantasy idea made up by some extremely creative computer office team? We will just have to wait and see because it's expected to come out in the next 2 years. But I hope this idea comes true because it is assuredly something we haven't seen before in stores, and I think it would be a great product.

 Overview 
 
Rolltop is a portable computer development concept for the designer, architect and virtually everyone who would like to have another gadget, which, from an aesthetic standpoint alone, certainly hits the mark. By virtue of the OLED-Display technology and multitouchscreen, the utility of this laptop computer, with its weight of a mini-notebook and screen size of 13 inches, easily transforms into a graphics tablet; its 17-inch flat screen can also be used as a primary monitor due to the support attached to the back of the screen.

Rolltop 2.0 is a further development of Rolltop with some visible and mostly invisible improvements (e.g. internal design, placement of certain components, etc.)



Proposition

Rolltop is not a "virtual and futuristic" gadget, existing only on the screen of your computer as most similar concepts and visions! Most former, existing design concepts usually have been developed without much deep technologic and ergonomic elaboration and often proved difficult or even impossible to be realized. From the beginning Rolltop has been developed as a real future product. During its development, a multiplicity of different scenarios (e.g. usability, functionality, etc.) were simulated. Moreover, its designers have included in Rolltop the best globally ergonomic, mechanic and electronic practices available.



Technology

The device, with its flexible display, allows a new concept in notebook design, growing out of the traditional "bookformed" laptop into an unfurling and convolving portable computer. Rolltop incorporates both the latest high-tech devices and new-brand design techniques into a computer that will increase the quality and productivity of the designers' work. On top of everything else - no laptop bag needed - all computer utilities from interactive pen to the power supply and holding belt are integrated in Rolltop. This is really an all-in-one gadget.
