Libra / Detachable laptop


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Libra is a 13.3” Windows 8 detachable laptop that fuses art and function. Its unique and clean hidden holder design eliminates traditional complex hook and latch locking mechanisms; and instead utilizes an intuitive and simple attach / detach motion. Users are able to easily unlock and take the tablet from its holder using an intuitive grasping motion by the corner of the screen. By holding the center of the device, it will remain attached and can be picked up as a whole. With the double-sided insertion mechanism, different scenarios like viewing mode, tablet mode and typing mode can be changed flexibly with ease.
