Lenovo Teases Paper-like Rollable ThinkPad Concept at NYC Event
Ron Perillo / 3 years ago
Lenovo unveiled several new products at their recent Transform NYC event 2017, mostly geared toward enterprise use. This includes the new super-compact ThinkStation P320 Tiny, which is a workstation that is even smaller than mini-ITX devices. The most stunning announcement at the event however, is the new rollable ThinkPad concept. This device is shown towards the tail-end of the two and half hour live stream and definitely caught everyone by surprise.
Future of Personalized Computing
This ThinkPad concept laptop is highly flexible and has the usual Lenovo keyboard. It has an enlarged screen and ditches the hinges, utilizing the material’s rollability instead. This is not just a simple use of OLED however as Lenovo wants to give users the ability to write on it. The design is definitely pretty wild and raises a lot of questions as to its viability. It lacks any visible output connectors such as USB ports, although Lenovo envisions the device to be always connected. It is able to accept commands via voice controls and constantly stays in sync.
