15 Offbeat Computer Designs

Poke Your PC

Odds: 4 to 1
Like the Siafu, the ZEN is specifically designed for the visually impaired. It is comprised of hardware called the "Sandbox PC" and a so-called ZEN edition operating system. The two work together to create a computing environment that can be used with your eyes closed. The Sandbox PC features Active Surface, an electronic surface that can take on different physical shapes and be manipulated by the user. You can read Braille text on it and make out windows, icons, and different textures. All input is made by touch--you can press into the surface, or scratch it with your fingers.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
