A Tablet PC is the ultimate form of using computers in any manner as far as I am concerned. What can be a problem with this thingamajig is the ability to use it in versatile positions. An industrial design student, Eli Revzin has gone beyond the domains of the ordinary thinkers, by designing an articulating arm that thoroughly caters to the problem. Dubbed the TOSHI, the articulating arm is supported by automatic position memory. The designer came up with his design after extensive researching that involved Tablet PC owners. As per him, the Tablet PC can be used as monitor and a writing tool at the same time and therefore position change between the states can be a cumbersome exercise. TOSHI takes care of this aspect using an electric locking mechanism, which stays closed by default. It is unlocked using two buttons, which when pressed enable position change. One of the button changes the position of the PC from horizontal to vertical, whilst the other one sets the position of the arm. The flexibility allows the user to choose endless positions by varying screen distance, height and tilt.
