It looks like a 1997 era Compaq broken in frustration across the knee, but what you are looking at is is Ergonomic Dual Screen Split Keyboard Notebook Computer... the world's only platform "to exploit Windows (TM) with dual screens!" Like its prototype, the "Sketch 'N' Send", the patents for the technology apparently stretch back to 1994, but the guys at Ergonomic Keyboard now claim that the laptop will ship in 2008. And hell, they must be optimistic about the laptop's success: they're selling all the patents!
These Patents are for sale. There are about 4 million notebooks sold each year, if you get 2.5% of that market that is 100,000. If you sell the notebook for $1,000, that's $100,000,000/year. This product could easily get 10%-20% of that market with a selling price of $2,000.It's a huge joke, but my lust slithers out of its sheath, striking its tentacle-like appendage in the Sketch 'N' Send's direction. It's like a Yanko Design from the Clinton Era, but it hearkens back to the days when laptops were huge and chunky and came in gray, when trackballs were ubiquitous, and when any conveptual deviations from the stock laptop archetype were inspired almost entirely by Star Trek: The Next Generation..
