MacBook Touch concept
Gizmodo reader David McMillan has whipped up some amazing MacBook Touch concepts, based on one of Apple's newly revealed double sided panel patents. The concepts use a transparent multi-touch display that can work as a control surface on two sides, both while the device is open and closed.

In the first concept (pictured above), the transparent panel doubles as a keyboard when it's flipped open. That keyboard can also morph into a control surface and/or mixer thanks to its dynamic, electronic surface. When closed, the panel becomes a transparent touchscreen for the monitor underneath it turning it into a Mac tablet.

Could this be the ultimate hybrid notebook? The only problem with adoption of such a machine would be typing on a flat, non-tactile surface with no haptic feedback. Hmmm, sounds vaguely like another Apple product we know and love.
