Fujitsu at Tokyo Premio

Fujitsu brought Japanese design to the Milan, Italy-based Tokyo Design Premio expo yesterday with two new concepts that may become a production reality in the near future. Nicknamed the "Fab PC," the pictured notebook would use e-paper to create a soft, flexible display. The screen could literally wrap around the main notebook body and bend the image at a midpoint to separate taskbars at the bottom from app-related information above. Side benefits would include a much thinner and more impact-resistant display than for typical PCs. Backlighting for the keyboard and a very thin case would also be part of the design.

A second concept, the Media Dealer (shown at bottom), would include swappable displays. The handheld would include a faceplate-like second that would detach from the main device: the screen would include secondary information, such as maps, that wouldn't require the storage and power of its host. Though currently unexplained by Fujitsu, the technique would let owners pass on information to one user while playing media for another.

Both are strictly design concepts and may not be produced as-is. Nevertheless, the company has suggested that both the Fab PC and Media Dealer are representative of the company's real-world future products. [via PingMag]
