The work of US-based designer rené lee, the ‘bento’ computing system concept integrates a notebook, tablet, and smartphone into a single modular device, expanding the possibilities of networked use while extending the life cycle of the product and providing easy portability of each component. ‘bento’ was shortlisted from over 1000 designs in our recent designboom competition ‘a life with future computing’, organized in collaboration with FUJITSU. A laptop with 15″ OLED screen serves as the structural base of the design. when used as an integrated system, the 11″ tablet and 4″ phone sit in shallow depressions, flanked by a solar powered lithium-ion battery and a 1TB SSD drive. When charged, the tablet and phone can be removed and used wirelessly, or utilized independently as individual devices.
