Rolltop – A Flexible Laptop May Be Closer Than We Think

You’re already watching the video, so let me break it down: this is Rolltop. It’s a laptop that rolls out. Pretty simple. And probably not the first one of these you’ve ever seen – but as the technology actually exists to make this a possibility now, it serves to make something like Rolltop all the more exciting.

What makes Rolltop especially rad, though, is that unlike many of these videos that typically represent only forays into wishful thinking by ambitious design students, the Rolltop team is actively vying to reach production. So the real question here is not ‘if’, but ‘when’ – or perhaps even more poignantly, ‘would you’? Is a sleek, all-in-one, laptop-cum-tablet your bag? As a tablet, I can imagine the Rolltop would be aces. As a laptop? Well, we’ll see.

For more information, or to donate to the project, you can visit Rolltop here.
