For those of you who are sick and tired of looking at the same laptop every day, Felix Schmidberger has shown off a slick new laptop concept.

Dubbed the Compenion, the laptop is a futuristic design that Schmidberger believes could become the norm by 2015. The Compenion features a sliding touchscreen that unveils an OLED touchscreen keyboard underneath. The concept also includes a multi-touch recognition system that allows you to use both hands when maneuvering your way around the desktop or the Internet. If finger-pressing isn't for you, the Compenion also supports a "senstylus" that, as far as I can tell, works much like the stylus you find on Tablet PCs.

But perhaps my favorite feature is the inclusion of a dock that, once you slide the keyboard into it, will project movies onto a screen or wall.

All in all, the Compenion isn't a bad idea, and I wouldn't mind it sitting on my desk at home. But for all that it offers, is 2015 really going to be like that? I certainly hope not. I want to see some serious gains in technology and instantaneous responses to my queries. OK, so maybe the latter is a pie-in-the-sky idea, but a guy can hope can't he?
