Last week we talked about a decidedly Sony-looking concept notebook from Lenovo, and today it is revealed, albeit a little anti-climatically. It turns out this not a sexy new top-secret device waiting to be unleashed, but a 2 year old concept machine – unlikely to see the light of day. Johnson Li, from Lenovo’s Beijing design center, has written up a post over at Lenovo’s Design Matters blog.
We in Lenovo’s Beijing design center refer to this concept as the “Pocket Yoga,” an extension of an award winning design we’ve shown in public based on a folding concept inspired by the practice of yoga by one of our New Zealand-based designers. The full Yoga concept was a folding notebook with a detachable keyboard. The system unit was covered in leather.
Pocket Yoga is shaped just like a large wallet. You can easily put it into your pocket. The proportion of length and width is about the maximum size for a notebook that can fit into a pocket, or, as we like to say, it is the smallest pocket notebook.
