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.

The Verge, “Lenovo shows off an absurd laptop concept with a flexible screen.”
