This fake table-top computer, called 'Dear Diary 1.0,' is embedded in a wooden table. It was designed and created by Marlies Romberg, a graduate from Utrecht School of Arts.

The goal of Romberg's project was to materialize the digital world of technology.

Check out the intricate detailing in Dear Diary 1.0, which also comes with a top secret USB key.

Implications - The materialization of the digital world is something that we are covering a lot on Trend Hunter. As technology moves forward at a break-neck pace, individuals (especially boomers) lag behind this technology curve, still longing for tactile products and services. The world of virtual products and services will only go so far before tangibility is preferred.
