There is nothing quite like a splash of color to brighten up the day – and the Keyless LifeBook concept that you see here ought to make your day if you’re feeling particularly down when the work week starts. An entry in the 2011 Fujitsu Design Award competition, it will bring personal configuration to a whole new level, sporting a full touchscreen keyboard on a full-size laptop that will enable you to pick, arrange and configure your very own layout choices.
Designed by Laura Lahti, her Keyless LifeBook concept remains to be seen whether it will continue being a conceptual idea, or will it actually end up as a working prototype sometime down the road – with hope that it will actually make the jump to a commercially available machine. One ought to keep their fingers crossed that vibration key feedback might even be thrown into the final edition.
This concept works great if you want to split the keyboard into different sections for ergonomic comfort or gaming efficiency. Imagine placing the numeric keyboard on the left if you’re more used to that, and the touchpad area miht also be positioned according to where you please, moving it away when it isn’t required for the task at hand. Seems that an idea like this will certainly sip quite a lot of juice, so that is something engineers will have to look into.
