'Egg' computer wins Intel/Samsung design contest

Intel/Samsung PC contest

The winner of a Korean design contest sponsored by Intel and Samsung is the Egg, a PC designed more like a TV dinner tray than a conventional computer. Aside from fitting its keyboard underneath, the primary attraction is its modularity: to connect devices like a camera, disk drive or media player, users simply place them in divots on the top of the tray. High-speed wireless technology is used to transfer data.

Second place in the contest was the Turning Lamp, which is powered on by pulling a cord, and can switch between music, movie or general PC functions by rotating the 'lampshade' -- the computer itself. Another notable entry was B-Membrain, shaped like a wizard's hat, but actually fairly practical in that the cone is used to project the display. Photos can be seen by clicking below. [via AVING]
