Zen PC

By Evan Ackerman

The Optimus keyboard is pretty and all, but it’s awfully flat and keyboardy. The Zen Sandbox PC may be monochrome, but it uses some kind of conceptual “z-axis” electronic surface to create dynamically tactile 3D features that the user can manipulate.

The Zen is designed for the visually impaired, since it would be able to display braille, or a textured simulation of your computer desktop. You can also turn it into a piano, or a xylophone, or just about anything else you can imagine. At the moment, though, you’ll have to imagine the Zen too, because it and the technology that powers it are still just a concept.
