Fascinating to far-fetched: 15 concept laptops

Fascinating and far-fetched PCs

Many of these concepts may never leave the drawing board or lab, but we can always dream...and in some cases, be thankful.

Projection PCs

Why bother with a space-hogging keyboard and monitor when a humble pen would suffice?

Researchers are developing projector PCs (for lack of a better term) capable of projecting a computer display and a touchscreen-like virtual keyboard on a smooth surface, such as your desk.

Flexible displays

Your laptop, tablet, or ereader may soon have a flexible display rather than a rigid glass screen that can break too easily.

The Skiff Reader, a Kindle-like device designed for newspaper and magazine content, may be the first such model to debut.

Its bendable 'metal foil' epaper display is built to last, as are similar monochrome prototypes from LG Display and other tech companies.

HP and Arizona State University are developing a flexible colour display, as well.
