Fujitsu Lifebook 2013 Concept Device
It was exciting when the first all-in-one printer first arrived some 5 years ago. The thought of uniting a printer, copier and scanner into one device saved millions of people both money and space. The need of a new all-in-one device has now become necessary. People are once again loading up on multiple devices that can be unified. People routinely use a laptop, a tablet, a smartphone and a camera. This Fujitsu Lifebook concept device seeks to unify all of your devices into one.
This unique design came from Prashant Chandra, a designer who submitted this design to a Fujitsu sponsored competition. While this device has not been created and is just a concept, it’s still neat to take a look at what the future may hold. Let’s take a closer look at the Fujitsu Lifebook 2013.
This concept device looks just like a laptop. It’s thin, sleek and powerful. You may notice it doesn’t come with a physical keyboard. Instead, there’s a slot to insert your tablet. Once it’s plugged in, the tablet turns into a keyboard. Although the laptop doesn’t have a physical keyboard, the computing power of the tablet can be used to give the laptop more computing power.
The smartphone hasn’t quite replaced the camera just yet. Cameras have more megapixels, better flash and many more features. The Fujitsu Lifebook has a slot for your sleek digital camera. In this theoretical device, when you place the digital camera on the front of it, the pictures would be transferred to the laptop and the other devices.
When you slide your smartphone into the laptop any music stored on it could be played on the laptop. Your apps, like spotify, mapmyrun, instagram and evernote would be sync’ed to your tablet once connected. Other data, such as bookmarks, notes and contacts, would also be updated across all your devices. Your phone would be charged, your pictures would be transferred and your software could be updated seamlessly.
The tablet, when connected to the laptop, can function as a keyboard. But it can do so much more. You can use it as a second display if you’d like or it can even be transformed into a sketchpad with the use of a stylus pen. If you need to run, just pop it out and you’ve got a fully sync’ed, updated and charged tablet to continue your work.
