design stories

Seriously, these Fujitsu concept computers are getting a bit out of hand. There are so many designs to love that it breaks our hearts when we have to remember none of them are real. Each design was drafted with the theme of "A Life with Future Computing" in mind. We've rounded up the best designs from Fujitsu's Design Award 2011 Competition organized by DesignBoom here for you, so hurry on over and check out a glimpse of the future of mobile computing.
The interesting thing about those 1980s Star Trek Next Generation episodes is how those very fake looking control panels (black glass with colorful shapes for interfaces) are now, in the wake of the iPhone and iPad, becoming quite realistic. Thus this latest concept device is less pie-in-the sky design fancy, and now just another realistic alternative.
