Kaleido Screenless Portable PC Comes with Built-in Projector & Foldable Keyboard

The iF International Forum Design GmbH organizes a yearly design competition called the iF DESIGN AWARD. Hefei LCFC Information Technology’s Kaleido is one of this year’s winners.

At first sight, I assumed it was a keyboard PC, but instead, it’s a portable computer without screen instead integrating a projector and a foldable keyboard.

When the keyboard is unfolded the projector display can be seen straight ahead, but the triangular case allows the computer to project the display at a 30° angle, or straight ahead in “tower” mode which places the projector higher up and may be needed to align with the white curtain.

The computer also integrates a loudspeaker and microphone which can be used for conference calls. It’s compact and light enough to be transported in a suitcase between meetings.

We don’t have specifications as Kaleido appears to be at the design stage, but the date of launch is supposed to be 2020, so we may expect it to become available later this year, maybe under another brand, across the world since the Chinese company’s target markets in 6 continents.

  1. Given the very small size of the projector, I guess it’s a laser-based one, which requires quite a dark room to see anything.

  2. Shame it doesn’t include touch screen paradigm like seen in Shanghai Easi Computer Tech portable projector. It uses extra sensor to map projected image to act as touch screen up to 80″.
