The Dell Canvas is a horizontal “do” surface that compliments the user's vertical view surfaces, revolutionizing the way people work and create. There is nothing like the Dell Canvas available today, created to be an immersive new technology category. Display and input merge into one device, allowing seamless navigation across two planes by touch, pen, mouse, or totem. Engineered to lay flat on the user’s desktop, the Dell Canvas is a streamlined display and input device. With more flatness, users across a broad variety of fields, from design to engineering, finance to oil and gas, can interact with their system in a multi-dimensional environment.

This entry represents a new way of working. For years, the creative professions had adapted to the limitations of PCs for creative work. Now at last, Dell has made an effort to liberate people, giving them a hands-on way of working. A very significant step in the right direction. The aesthetics of the product are very utilitarian, yet at the same time exquisitely done. Simple but well-executed, built with quality.
