Sony concepts: future VAIOs

Among numerous exhibitions and conferences of this week there´s Sony Dream World 2002 started yesterday in Yokohama. VAIO EXPO 2002 resembles an "exhibition in exhibition", featuring such concepts besides computer, peripheral, musical and gaming products.

Sony goes still farther from usual PC forms. This thing is called VAIO NOTE Personal Library or VAIO Contents Egg, but the name won´t let you understand the meaning. It´s nothing more than a home server for photos, videos, music, etc., supporting external monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc. Inserting disc into a built-in DVD-RW launches the playback. Loading external data the body turns blue.

VAIO Contents Egg is designed for storing photos, favourite TV shows, music. It can be saved to a built-in hard disk or to a DVD disc. Naturally, the egg supports wireless Internet connectivity, enabling more content. And, of course, VAIO Contents Egg supports notebook connectivity.

This tambourine is another home server called Sensing Computer or VAIO E. Q. Provided with wireless connectivity it´s controlled by a sensor panel or voice. According to the company these or similar things might be commercialized by 2004.
