Prashant Chandra's Fujitsu Lifebook concept may be the future of the laptop. The Indian designer's conceptual computer meshes with tablets and cellphones to provide a boost of power and to make document-sharing easier. This concept computer isn't just designed to work with other mobile devices, it actually depends on them to function. The Lifebook concept doesn't come with a keyboard, but instead relies upon a tablet docked in the center to become its virtual keyboard.

The docked tablet does more than let you type; once docked, the tablet becomes a keyboard and shares its processing power and information with the laptop. When a smartphone is connected to the Lifebook concept it also shares its hardware and processing power. High-powered hybrid gadgets are the norm rather than the exception nowadays and it may be just a matter of time before laptops begin integrating with mobile gadgets.
