Despite attempts to combine different functions into one device, people still keep their technology pieces separate. Bento Book by Rene Lee recognizes your reasons for perhaps owning an iPad as well as an iPhone, but offers to bring gadgets together for those occasions when you might like communication between them.

The cutting-edge system is essentially a hi-tech shell. At 0.6 inches thick with a 15.4-inch screen, the electronic case looks much like a laptop but performs no functions until you slide in your tablet and smartphone between your solar cell battery and solid state storage. The "computer" can charge your gadgets and project their visuals onto its larger monitor. Inspired by the food-serving method of Japanese bento box, the Bento Book by Rene Lee offers a complete and balanced meal to satisfy the technology hungry.
