Flexible tablet concept uses inductive charging

Physical production capabilities are finally catching up with the designers dreaming up flexible technologies, including the “Breathebook” concept that does away with the idea that devices must balance delicately or remain flat.

Foldable, flexible tablets

With the announcement last month that LG has already begun mass production of its electronic paper display (EPD) product, flexible tablet, smartphone, laptop and desktop concepts have become a more likely reality, and the industry is about to undergo a pivot in design in an industry that has become relatively stale when it comes to physical aesthetic design.

One such flexible concept is the “Breathebook,” which according to Yanko Design is not an official Fujitsu product, it was designed by Anthony Yu to fold into various forms and sit nicely inside the Fujitsu brand. That is not to say that if Fujitsu saw the design they wouldn’t be interested, but it is still a private design in its early concept phase.

The Breathebook has a flexible display, and the ability to work with a set of two cameras. It also takes advantage of inductive charging which uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between a charging station and the device.

The concept is that the technology is flexible and meant to fold over the side of your leg, replacing the idea that a tablet or laptop has to be balanced delicately or rest on a flat surface.

Look for more flexible designs to come to fruition as the technology and physical capacity for production have caught up with the genius ideas of international designers.
