And you thought you'd never see a typewriter again! The c concept looks so much like the retro typewriters of the 80s, it's hard to believe it integrates cutting edge technology.

The high end device features fingerprint technologies to ensure exclusive security. The lid of the computer is locked until a system approved fingerprint is placed on the scan pad.

"USB and FireWire ports can be shut off and locked to prevent unwanted data download on the workplace," the Coroflot design page says. "An integrated scanner/shredder allows businessmen to safely digitize and destroy their notes."

The IBM Security Laptop is the vision of Nicolas Lehotzky, a Pasadena, CA Industrial Designer. Stats for Typewriter-Inspired PCs Trending: Older & Mild
