The laptop reduces its carbon footprint by shrinking the motherboard down by 75 percent, using 20 percent fewer components. It also moves the motherboard away from the battery and closer to the keyboard for better passive cooling, which could make a fan obsolete. Further, the aluminum chassis requires less energy to produce, being made with hydro power a stamped aluminum construction.
The keyboard is a single piece that can be easily removed, which makes it possible to access the internals within moments. Once inside, the laptop was designed with 10 times fewer screws than other Dell laptops, a design choice that cuts down time to fix and replace parts by a wide margin. Paired with a long-lasting and easily replaceable battery, as well as a PCB made out of eco-friendly materials, the Concept Luna laptop is a holistic approach to reusable tech that I hope becomes the norm.
After Dell launched arguably one of the best high-end webcam this year, it’s reimagining what the future can be. Concept Pari is a wireless webcam that can be placed anywhere on a compatible monitor, including the dead-center of the screen for direct eye contact. The camera is tiny, weighing less than an AirPods case, and is able to transmit 1080p video over Wi-Fi. When not being used, it charges wirelessly via the dock and can be reversed as it charges for privacy.
