Lenovo’s bendy computer

You know Salvador Dalí’s melting watches? That’s what Lenovo’s new flexible computer reminds us of. It’s basically a bendable screen with a built-in keyboard and the Thinkpad’s trademark “Tagada strawberry” mousenub (or whatever it’s called). With this concept, most of the interaction would happen over voice commands or a stylus. Lenovo says that this concept would be achieved through “advanced materials” and “new screen technologies.” That’s not very specific. The media and experts are coolly skeptical.
