Nesting PC Virtual Tablet' Concept

 
'nesting pc virtual tablet' by sono mocci


a concept by japanese-born, italy-based designer sono mocci, 'nesting pc virtual tablet' is a combination tablet and data visualization 
interface with automatic battery charging and data syncing. phones, memory cards, CDs, USB ports, and I/O cables can be plugged 
directly into the device, where they will show up as images on the touchscreen for easy manipulation and access. the design was shortlisted 
from over 1000 concepts in our recent designboom competition 'a life with future computing', organized in collaboration with FUJITSU.

the 13-inch concept tablet features a dedicated dock for mobile phones. when inserted, a visualization of the phone onscreen 
works in the same manner as would the device itself, permitting dialing, calling, texting, and other use. the loading of disk media 
or flash drives offers a similar intuitive functionality. integrated charging eliminates the need for AC or outlet-specific adapters 
for these kinds of devices.
