PCs that barely resemble PCs: PC Design Contest 2007 winners

Thanks to LifeHacker for this link to CNET for ZDNet Korea’s photo report on “PCs that barely resemble PCs.”

“The results are in for the PC Design Contest 2007, co-sponsored by Intel Korea and Samsung. The winning designs, announced last week, try to merge style, originality and practicality. Out of 644 entries, 6 designs won awards.

The grand-prize winner in the “revolutionary” category is the Egg PC. The machine includes three Bluetooth-ready marble knobs designed for multimedia applications. The marbles rest atop a tray and connect wirelessly to the main PC.”

There are some interesting designs here, from handbags to touch screen PCs to this one, “Front of the Mirror,” from architect Won-Chul Kim:

Mirror PC

With our boys, we’ll probably need a locker room PC format.

Also of interest, these photos of new Windows Vista PCs, like the HP TouchSmart, the Sony Vaio VGC-LS25E and VGX-TP1.


Watch the unveiling of hot new Windows Vista-ready PCs at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show.
