Forget the iPad, I want a Rolltop

A concept video of a roll-up computer that would beat the pants off the iPad -- and you can use it as a yoga mat.

It's obviously a concept, but this video by Orkin Designshows what could be in store for the future of tablet computing. The video reminds me of those futuristic digital paper concept videos that surface now and again.

The device of the flexible display allows a new concept in notebook design growing out of the traditional bookformed laptop into unfurling and convolving portable computer. By virtue of the OLED-Display technology and a multi touch screen the utility of a laptop computer with its weight of a mini-notebook and screen size of 13 inch easily transforms into the graphics tablet, which with its 17-inch flat screen can be also used as a primary monitor. On top of everything else all computer utilities from power supply through the holding belt to an interactive pen are integrated in Rolltop. This is really an all-in-one gadget.
