CURVED/labs Concept Tribute To Apple’s First Macintosh
Like a pair of 80s-era legwarmers on Kate Upton, sometimes a melding of the old and new can be beautiful. German technology site CURVED/labs proves that once again with this touchscreen concept iMac, newly designed for the 30th anniversary of Apple’s first desktop computer, the “Lisa.”
Using components from a 2014 MacBook Air, the design team managed to impressively create a frame that combines the original bulbous profile of the first Macintosh with the sleek stand of today’s iProducts. The 11.6in screen is a touchscreen and the concept runs on an Intel i7 chip, with an SSD flash memory that has 128GB built in. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB 3.0, Lightning port, built-in battery, slots for SD cards, speakers, microphone and FaceTime camera are also all there. But if you really want this concept to become a reality in your home, we’d start begging CURVE/labs right now.
