We’ve been using laptops to post during the last few days, and although our computers are quite good, laptops are clearly not ergonomic. This Toshiba prototype has a detachable touch-screen that could be placed higher to avoid neck pain. Once detached, the display also acts as a Tablet PC and can be interacted with, using a stylus. This effectively reduces at least half of the bulk and weight, compared to a traditional Tablet PC, as the rest of the computer doesn’t have to be carried by the user, while in Tablet mode. The display data is transmitted to the detachable screen via Wifi, and so far, it was working very well on the CES show floor. Conceptually, one could also use a better display when at home, or in the office. This opens a lot of possibilities.
