Origami is childsplay

Now, I’m not in the habit of posting links to videos of young girls playing with toys, but this time I’ll make an exception. WhatIsNew’s Lora has posted a video interview she made with her 12 year old, after spending the day playing with the TabletKiosk Origami mini-tablet PC.

This is great! And this is why I think this device is going to make a huge impact to alot of people. Not just kids. There are ‘executive’ models on the way and the one in the video is one of the prototypes.

Very impressed with the corner-placed thumb keyboards for input without the stylus while holding it in both hands.

Also, I can’t wait to try some of my fullscreen Flash kiosk applictions on that device! Cool!

Bonus: Hop on over to channel9 and watch Otto Berkes, who is the architect (now general manager) behind the Ultra-Mobile PC team, code-named Origami, give Scoble all the nifty details.
Excuse all the double-entendres! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Heh.

Hey check out the metachannel9guy!


  • Thanks for the link. Kim has had a great time using the UMPC. She’s going to have a hard time giving it up!

  • Thanks for all the nice comments about me. ^_^
    I had MUCH fun playing with the oragami, and hope to get my own someday…. anyways, this computer rocks! You should… um.. buy it? =)

  • Hey thanks for stopping by here!
    It really looks like a cool device. I’ll certainly be trying to get my hands on one somehow ๐Ÿ™‚

    It could be a cool device for recording podcasts on if it has a mic. Hmm. then I could install my podcasting tool. yay! Hmmmm…

    want one…. want one now!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
