Final Design

Above is my final design, the overall result has turned out to be a very organic and sustainable by combining the organic shape of the laptop with its soft curves and the sustainability of the material which i have used.

Here you can see its features when the laptop is open, it has all the main funtions and features that exsiting laptops have such as an LCD screen, motion eye web cam and keyboard. The trackpad has the texture as the body of the laptop, but abit smoother as this will constantly be in contact with the consumer, with it being smoother will prevent any discomfort or injury. With the trackpad being the same material as the body of the laptop it is slightly comoflauged giing the laptop a nice little feature.

This is the rear view of the laptop when closed, as you can see the casing of the laptop is in one piece and gives the impression that there is no connection between the screen and the base of the laptop, again adding to the organic style of its design.

The key feature of this design is the material which i have chosen to manufacture the laptop out of as it is a very sustainable material, it has a really nice texture to it and also very good properties making it hard waring and protective.

Developement (material+laptop)

Here i have taken the idea of adding the new and sustainable material to a laptop. i have simply taken the common shape of a laptop and added the material to it, the material would very effective for a laptop as it would add great strengh and protection to the product as the material is already used as a packaging material and is slowly taking over the existing polstyrene.

In the initial design the keys were white but after playing around with colors i decided that black would look alot more effective.

This close up shows how the logo can still be shown through/embossed into the material to gie the laptop its recognition.

Here are a few close ups of how the material would look on the inside of the laptop, i like the way it complements and works well with the screen and buttons which would be the exsisting materials like plastic and glass.
