When it comes to laptop we are seeing the same design every day. We are very used to this design very much and this design repetition has become somewhat boring over the time. The two piece laptop consists of the same foldable design with the keyboard on one side and the display on the other side.
The materials most commonly used for construction are plastic or compound panels. So what if you want a refreshingly new device that breaks the existing design philosophies.
Modder John Dum has exactly the needed device for you. When you see the Sony Vaio F laptop that he has redesigned you will be left speech less. The designer has redesigned the whole device and now it looks like a device that has been shot out directly from the70’s or 80’s. What the designer actually did was that he removed the traditional construction materials and replaced them with plywood, pinewood, copper and brass.
This device looks like an anachronistic piece of technology and the overall design is true to the general Steampunk design. But don’t let the looks fool you, the laptop is fully functional and has all the functionalities of a normal laptop.
This newest creation is called as eCog Mercury. The outer casing of the laptop and the underside of the device is provided with wood covering. The wood is polished and painted to give a retro look. Soft textile padding is provided on either side of the touch pad. This lets the user to comfortably rest the palms on it and use the laptop for hours without any discomfort.
The keyboard is completely overhauled and now sports round keys in it. The keys have brass finishing and really look beautiful and luxurious. The keyboard has the look and feel of a type writer. The different connectivity ports and indicator lights are integrated on to the device and are placed in their original position itself.
This isn’t the first Steampunk modification and we have seen more rugged designs earlier. It doesn’t look like the designer wants to make this his last piece and is continuing on with moulding other devices. So if you have plenty of cash to shed out and a laptop at your disposal you can opt to redesign it to make it look like this piece of art.
You still will need to have a Sony laptop itself to get the job done. However the price you will pay for it is premium, though exact price is not yet officially confirmed.
