Techlev Apple SlideBook Pro Concept Product

What you see above is Techlev's first of some upcoming concept designs, made in Google Sketchup. The idea came to me when I was thinking about the growing number of touchscreen products. Because of this, all other "non-touch screen"products might start to feel old and "out-of-date", and their sales would probably begin to decline. With no clear change of trend in sight, the future of the standard notebook is grim. In order for this amazing product to survive, it will need to gain a touch screen. The most successful touch screen product today is the cell phone, and that inspired me to create a variation of a phone with a sliding qwerty keyboard.
The  Slidebook Pro concept looks like a normal MacBook Pro at first, until the screen is tilted all the way backwards. It is then slid down across the keyboard, completing its transformation into tablet mode. It closes like any other MacBook.

I modified the MacBook Pro SketchUp model from this link to create the image above:

CNET Touch Display Comparison Chart

After HOURS of research, I finally found the three best, full-featured touch displays out there. You can contact Techlev if you need help finding Mac OS X drivers (maybe you could help us too) or to reccomend a different monitor. The comparison chart is after the break.

CNET iPod Speaker Comparison Chart

There is a list of five reccomended iPod speakers after the break -fully researched. There will be more comparison charts to come.

P-Flip Foldable Solar Power

Have you ever been stuck somewhere with no outlet around? Today is your lucky day. This compact solar iPhone charger (supports all models!) doubles as a dock, too. It apparently extends talk time for up to eight hours for the cost of 15 hours in the sun for a full charge. Not to worry: you can still plug this into a wire as your backup plan. $79.90
Head past the break for another cool (and better) solar charger.

Video Camera - Pico Projector Concept


Looking for a new video camera? This one is unfortunately not for sale, but it points towards a happier future for home movie makers. It imitates a cute little face, one eye being the camera, and the other, a compact pico projector. The little smile in the middle is actually a microphone. The little feet you see in the picture above can be used as a stand for the device while the projector is in use. They also double as lids for the plugs and switches and such. Head past the break for the source link and another picture.
