DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
YOGA 900s

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Convertible laptop

INSPIRATION:
YOGA 900s is inspired from a journal, which provides a familiar experience in daily life, such as the way that a journal opens, rotates 360 degree, and is hold by one hand. The contrast side view between external shell and internal body looks like a metaphor of a journal. The watch-band hinge design provide an elegant quality with premium feeling.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The YOGA 900s is stylish and elegant hybrid Ultrabook. 12.8mm thickness makes it the world's slimmest device in the convertible category. 900s features innovative watch band hinge which can rotate 360 degree and adapt to different scenarios. 10.5-hour long battery life will help your 'always-on'; lifestyle. Web-core carbon is embedded in A cover, makes it thin and light but also strong. Leather adds a soft touch on C cover, a comfortable support for holding and typing.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
We invented the watch chain hinge, it is composed of 813 individual components for fluid transitions between modes. Then the laptop's weight is distributed across six discrete hinge points, competitors is just two,it can help the user to change any mode more smooth and steady. Competitors always use AL material, this seems to be expensive. But for the convertible, we care more about how to make users comfortable, weight, thickness and touch feeling .So we find the most appropriate materials such as leather, carbon fiber, etc
