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.

Asus Origami

Inspired by the Japanese art of paper folding, Asus's three concept PCs are laptop contortionists.

As this video illustrates, the folding, flexible design allows each notebook to double as an iPad-style tablet.

It encourages collaborative computing, too--a boon for workgroups.

Moonlight

This curvaceous concept is more all-in-one desktop than laptop. Featuring two displays and a sleek crescent-moon motif, the Moonlight is dressed to impress.

The smaller, lower screen could serve as a touchscreen, as an extension of the main display, or as a screen for a second operating system.

Designer Teo Braun added a light-sensitive frame that illuminates in the dark to reduce eyestrain.
