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.

  1. On the table, it would have space to help keep it cool. On the lap, it might be easier to use.

    With flexible electronics and flexible OLED screens, I see this as totally doable. It breaks the mold for notebook computers. Perhaps it could lead to other shapes for computers? I think it has potential.

  2. Gawd, I hate those curved keyboards. Also, what is the point of a ‘bendable’ display that you just ‘pre-bent’ on just one direction? If it bends would you want to have control over how little or how much…? Just sayin’
