Rolltop touchscreen laptop concept designed to save the news

Now that everyone from Barnes & Noble to (allegedly) Apple has looked to the tablet to save the newspaper business, next-gen design concepts like the Rolltop were just a matter of time. Created by Orkin Design, the concept device would roll up just like a traditional newspaper, but when unfurled would offer a touchscreen OLED display.

This idea has been out there for a while, but the cool twist here is the fact that it would serve as both a 13-inch laptop and a 17-inch dedicated computer display. The unit would also come with a detachable hub with a power adapter, a stylus, and a couple of USB ports. You can see video of the Rolltop in action here.
