'integral cord' 'FUJITSU design award 2011' life design category

‘integral cord’ by raphael lang, yu-lin hou and stephen chan win tak

the ‘integral cord’ by germany based design trio raphael lang, yu-lin hou and stephen chan win tak has received the runner-up prize from the lifebook category in our recent designboom competition ‘a life with future computing‘, organized in collaboration with FUJITSU and DA – design association japan.

designer’s own words: what if the display of your future lifebook was as flexible as possible? with ‘integral cord’ you can easily manipulate your computer screen to your desired size and shape, making it adaptable to any working or social situation. if you want to see your favorite movie on a small screen in the subway, or present your pictures to a large audience or if you need multiple screens at the same time, coil it! the technology involves beams of several LEDs overlap at a cross point and create a visible pixel.
