Note”Book” Mod

If you’ve ever wanted a laptop computer that resembled a thick book, you might want to make friends with a chap named Kyle Bean.  His mod is certainly an interesting one, in that it puts the ‘book’ back into ‘notebook’, or the other way around.

Here’s a little background on the project:

With everything turning towards technology, we have adapted the out with the old, in with the new mentality.  Designer Kyle Bean has created a design that illustrates the issues with “technology and the Internet, and the effect it is having on the way we source information.”  We are becoming a society that is more virtual.  We download music rather than purchase CD’s, we research on the net, rather than going to the library and reading books.  According to Kyle, “Books also have personality - they have textures and smells which the internet can’t offer.”  Kyle wanted to illustrate this issue by using a book turned into a laptop.  The object is made from a book purchased at a discount bookstore for only £1.50, as well as a few electrical components to illuminate the screen.

There aren't any exact details as to the specs on this machine, but it certainly looks petite despite the new facade.

This is YankoDesign.com we're talking about here. It's not functional, just for looks. I wouldn't mind a working laptop that looked something like that, though.

Yeah, this would cause it to overheat.

I had a friend who lent his Ibook to his little brother while he went abroad. His brother left the computer on, and slid it underneath his pillow while he slept... This curled every single key on the keyboard and damaged the screen. My friend was pissed!

OMG! I would be so pissed too! Did the little brother do that because sleeping on a warm pillow was comfortable or something?
