This is a concept design by Fujitsu that popped up in Japan at CEATEC. While we don’t usually talk about concepts — they rarely come to fruition — it is important to look at it from a UI standpoint. Laptop makers are just now figuring out that there is a wealth of real estate on the laptop lid and adding little WiFi buttons and other claptrap. However, this media controller/turntable thingy takes that one step further. I’m quite certain 2007 is the year of the weird laptop lid, and you’re seeing it here first. While we’re sure LCDs are going to end up there, what else do you think we’ll see in working models?
