Smooth Sailing: Computer Projects Onto Any Glass Surface

Laptops and smartphones are already easy enough to carry around and use anywhere, but that doesn’t stop designers from coming up with crazy futuristic computer concepts. This concept from designer Jakub Záhoř is a sleek computer that can be used anywhere there’s an expanse of glass at your disposal.

The computer works by first adhering to a smooth glass surface. The computer then scans the surface to determine its size and shape.

After figuring out how large the surface is, the computer projects its display onto the glass along with the touch-sensitive input system.

The concept would make it easy to project pictures, movies or presentations almost anywhere. Because the display stretches to fit the size of the available glass, the display could be much larger than that of a laptop but simpler to operate than a projector.
