Brick, a transparent Pocket PC screen

In the future, laptops will be the size of smartphones and will have transparent touch screens. Such is the challenge designers Shaocheng Huang and Yuyin Huang. The duo has shown their vision with the concept Brick.

While it has no air, Brick is a concept laptop. Built like a smartphone, it has a rather thin body and especially a screen as transparent as glass. According to the designers, the design of a computer will evolve to give rise to advanced Pocket PC. In addition to storing and processing data, Brick can be used as a scanner, text translator and magnifying glass. For these three functions, the user simply place the glass over the text or image to be processed. Brick can also be used as a camera, camera and even pico projector.

The Brick concept was proposed to Fujitsu. For now, such a device is not feasible as all the necessary hardware can not be hidden under the opaque portion.
