Amazing Computer Concept Designs You Wish Were Real

Concept designs are great and frustrating at the same time. They’re wonderful because they give us a glimpse of the future and push the industry towards innovation and outside-of-the-box thinking, but agitating because we know we can’t have them right now. It can’t hurt to look at them though so that at least we can put money in the bank to save up for them when/if they go in production.
