'anderson' by ma yiwei + tao ying FUJITSU judge's special award

‘anderson’ by ma yiwei and tai ying

‘anderson’ by chinese designers ma yiwei and tao ying is one of the seven entries that received the ‘judge’s special award’ among over 3000 participants from our recent designboom competition ‘a life with future computing‘, organized in collaboration with FUJITSU and DA – design association japan.

‘anderson’ is next-generation computing device with a compact square profile that is easy to carry and hold in hands. it is designed for people who always want to stay connected with the internet, no matter when or where they are. two-way operating modes enable ‘anderson’ to be used in both ‘static’ and ‘in-motion’ situations. in landscape mode the device can be carried around while in use, in a manner similar to that of holding and reading a book. sitting down to enjoy a coffee and surf internet ‘anderson’ is best used in portrait mode.

  • OMG. I want it.

  • why would i use the landscape mode??

    gee
  • Oh, and just another thing, make this with two touch screens and I think it will work much much better, no need for the rotating hinge, just a simple two hinge and that´s it, plus all the versatibility of the organisation on the two screens.

    Your styling alone makes this a great project, don´t be affraid of making it fully touch screen and simplifiyng it even more, it will still be awesome.

    Pity
  • Great and simple, the only thing that worries me is the hinge, people are way too brute for this kind of ideas, nevertheless, love the styling, specially the small touches of red.

    Pity
  • way too complex to be user friendly. fail
