a concept by japanese-born, italy-based designer sono mocci (shunichi yamamoto), ‘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.
