Concepts more or less throw the practicality issue out of the window in its infancy stages, and the same applies to this scroll-inspired MID concept that relies on a highly flexible display that can be rolled up as a scroll within an ornate casing when not in use. Navigation is made simple and intuitive using its large touchscreen area, but you do get information toolbars on the side to further increase functionality. It would be interesting to see just how much abuse the display is able to take, and will something as small as the scroll be able to hold the necessary computing parts needed to run a decent platform for everyday computing needs?
