IBM Meta Pad

Stargate Intresting Peripherals IBM Meta Pad
3/2003 IBM researchers Ken Ocheltree and Bob Olyha inspect their Meta Pad computer core invention -- a 3-by-5 inch, 9-ounce prototype device that can transform in seconds into a handheld (shown), desktop (shown), laptop, tablet or wearable computer. To make Meta Pad so small, IBM researchers pulled the power supply, display and I/O connectors out of the core -- leaving processor, memory, data and applications. Components removed from the machine become accessories, and individual users decide how they want to use the device.
