• I.M -'interfaced memory', a concept computing system reorganizes the basis structure of a laptop, integrating the primary hard drive and additional memory into the mouse, and additional input and output features into an optionally connected corded unit.In the system, the net-book becomes the site of use, providing a screen and interface on top of processing power, but few additional hardware features. The decision to store memory into the portable mouse offers many functional benefits for data transfer and mobile working, but is also conceived of as an exploration of the bounds of our relationship with technological devices, whose data represent in some way an aspect of ourselves. Containing both a primary hard driveand removable flash memory, the mouse is linked to a single laptop, but can easily be ported into other computers with a cable. USB ports, speakers, wi-fi hub, and power plug are all integrated into a removable input-output connector.
  • the computer itself is an exploration of the connection between the computer and it's owner. the feeling that our personal computer is our best friend, the one that we can always count on and share our secrets with is something common that we all share. these feelings were the cause of seperating the laptop into three layers: the shell (interface), the connection (input\putput) and the core essence (memory). this personification of the laptop is shown also in the styling and the plastic language as it is enhaced by creating three little icon dolls, each one represents a part of the I.M set.
