[EN VIDÉO] In 2050, we will be working with transparent computers Today we are glued to our screens, but tomorrow, augmented reality and the power of computers will free us from our workstations, thanks to transparent or virtual screens. This is what Planète + explains to us in its new episode of Dreaming the Future, broadcast this Friday, February 3, 2017, and of which here is an exclusive extract.
Even if it is possible to choose your computer depending on the brand, but also on the configurations offered by each manufacturer, customization remains limited. And even more scalability. This is also the big weak point of PC laptops, compared to a desktop computer on which you can change the processor, the RAM, the graphics card or even the motherboard.
Based on this observation, an American start-up has decided to launch the first portable PC that is both tailor-made and upgradeable. Based on a 13-inch chassis, Framework thus offers customers the opportunity to create their own computer by selecting their processor, RAM, hard drive or even the number of connectors and the type (USB-C, USB-A, HDMI, DisplayPort, microSD, etc.). Same thing for the operating system between Linux or Windows 10. Like Fairphone in the field of smartphones, Framework is based on eco-responsible and ethical principles with materials designed at 50%aluminium recycled, and 30% of plastic recycled.
You can even assemble it yourself!
Common to all models, a 13-inch screen, a webcam 1080p, a 55 Wh battery and a 1.3 shell kg. Thus, it is an ultra-portable, and Framework even offers to sell the computer as a kit! As desired, therefore, we can receive the PC in spare parts, and more DIY enthusiasts can assemble it.
Then, if they show signs of weakness, all parts can be changed! Each component also has a QR-code, and you just need to scan it to access its online sheet to replace it. You can even change the screen and keyboard. For now, the price is not announced, and according to The Verge, pre-orders will begin in the spring with shipping during the summer.
