Arc Computer has put together a concept design for a notebook computer that has a curved body. At first glance, it looks silly. At second glance, I could see how it could be useful. At third glance… it just looks silly again.
You can check out a few videos after the break, but here’s the general idea: By giving the computer a curved design, you can outfit it with an ergonomic keyboard and an OLED display that’s perfect for showing 3D content.
The concept device also has room for a touchscreen display in the center of the keyboard, which you could use as a touchpad and/or application launcher.
I don’t know if we’ll ever see this thing come to market — and honestly, if I was a betting man I’d put my money on no. But it’s certainly an interesting idea. You can find out more about Arc computers at curved-world.com.
