Ericsson’s Spider Computer concept



Ericsson’s new concept is a working Spider Computer. Initially meant as a computer for third world countries, but was changed to become something more of a portable computer during the study.Spider Computer, a portable device that relies on a projected screen and laser keyboard to offer you a ready computer on the go. That’s why it has three thin legs like a spider. When they are hidden, the device becomes a mobile phone. It can be simply put in your pocket. And when the legs are deployed, the device can easily be placed on a flat surface. This will be the computer. The mirror head opens, and the projection is directed towards the table surface or a wall. Digital correction compensates for angular differences in projection versus surface. Circular LCD display with graphic interface. Working prototype was made for technology, user studies and research.

The current prototype has a built-in pico projector, a laser keyboard and a memory card reader. Ericsson is working on a clever way to integrate a long lasting battery and of course internet connectivity.
