Flexible devices are not just a smartphone industry pursuit. Lenovo has revealed a concept for what it considers to be the future of laptop computing: a foldable PC.

In the near-future, your laptop may be bendable.

Not bendable as in along its hinges, but foldable anywhere, like a piece of paper or a plastic sheet. That's what Lenovo is betting on, and it recently demonstrated a design concept that shows off just that, a foldable laptop.

A few days ago, Lenovo Senior VP of Commercial Business Christian Teismann took to the stage during his company's Lenovo Transform event to speak. He talked about the history of Lenovo's laptops, but what got everyone excited was when he showed the wild bendable laptop concept on the stage's large screen.

The laptop is essentially all screen and keyboard. There is no empty space between the two, and most curiously there is no trackpad. Input would be done via voice commands or with a stylus to write on the screen. The efficiency of controlling a laptop in this manner was not brought up at the event.

Also not talked about was how exactly this laptop would be made foldable. Teismann mentioned only that it would be made out of "advanced materials" and "advanced screen technologies." In addition, the laptop presented at the event doesn't actually exist in any form, not even as a prototype. It's clear that Lenovo is barely in the beginning stages of designing this next-generation computing device.
