“A number of small batteries, instead of the typical one big unit, [are] arranged in such a way to form a sort of a spine for the device,” said Schroeder.

The device can also be positioned in tent mode, enabling multiplayer gaming interactions.

Final thoughts

Motorola’s bendable phone and Lenovo’s transparent laptop appear to be the furthest from commercial availability.

However, despite its futuristic nature, the Ai Pin is already on sale for $700 with orders being accepted.
