This needs to be made.

It’s the Kindle-Mac!
I can’t even tell what I’m looking at, here. An iMac w/ Classic-style bezel + whenever that keyboard is from? Very nice.
Looks like an early 90’s concept piece, maybe late 80’s. I think the mouse is Mac SE era. When did Apple drop the rainbow Apple logo again?
My Apple II gs has a keyboard like that.
Those keyboards exist: http://www.applefritter.com/node/294
I think they dropped it around 1999 or 2000. My late-1999 iMac had a rainbow Apple on it, but I don’t remember seeing another rainbow Apple after that.
The concept is indeed from the late 80’s (note floppy slot). The keyboard was a working prototype of a frameless keyboard. Very compact, and with mechanical keys.
Thank you, themark!
