U.DTR: Ultra Desktop Replacement Concept Design

U.DTR: Ultra Desktop Replacement Concept Design

Desktops are being replaced by laptops in the workplace and at home. Users don’t really mind sacrificing screen estate for portability and convenience of being able to bring their work home with them. However, working with a 15-inch screen can be less than ideal. U.DTR is a concept design aimed at bridging the gap between desktop and laptop by providing desktop-esque ergonomics and flexibility while maintaining the portability of a laptop. The Ultra Desktop Replacement is the brainchild of industrial designer Marin Myftiu, and it is absolutely gorgeous. Marin explored the boundaries of technology with his concept design, all the while holding on to reality and what’s actually achievable. View his complete portfolio on Behance.

What do you think of his concept? Should it be brought to life? A potential Kickstarter project perhaps?

    This is an amazing and elegant design. A product like this has to be something that will do well in the market. I like the idea of the usb drive because its unique from any other PC. However, the product does look a little bit bulky and might be a problem if you have to carry it back and forth from work to home.

    Reminds me of bang and Olufsen HiFi systems from the 70s. The only thing that concerns me is upgrade ability – like a laptop it is probably not very flexible in that regard.

    As much as the idea would appeal to a dedicated base of users, my issue would always be with the weight. When looking at something like this as a laptop, how would you be able to viably carry such a device on your daily commute?

    Very cool design. Interestingly, it made me think back to the TI-99 for some reason.
