The aim of the project was to innovate the concept of touch laptop by creating a pc that can convert from tablet to laptop.
On projects that already exist in the market touch laptops has the keyboard as an “add-in” feature that you may detach or hide when you want to use the tablet version. This leads the product to switch between the two versions through subtraction of a part of the device that then is not used or has a limited functionality (most of existing products use it as a stand). The purpose of this study was to create a laptop that no longer “get rid” of the keyboard but uses it to make the experience more complete.
In this project the keyboard is conceived as a touch keyboard that allow the transformation to a unique and wider surface that can be either used as a graphic tablet or a desktop pc by adding wireless keyboard and mouse.
