 Fold-out keyboard

One of the biggest problems with the small form factor of netbooks is the keyboards. They’re just too small to comfortably use with adult-size hands. But the footprint of the computers themselves are great, making them super portable. What’s the solution? (Pics)

 

This clever concept device features a keyboard that folds out, allowing it to keep that small netbook footprint while also offering a comfortable, full-size keyboard. The only drawback I can see would be the thickness that another folded layer would add to the design. But if done right, it could be a worthwhile tradeoff. We’ll have to wait and see if any computer manufacturers choose to turn this concept into reality.
