Intel North Cape A Detachable Tablet Done Right
Windows 8 crosses the boundaries from the traditional desktop computing to a mobile touch user experience. Intel’s latest Fourth Gen Intel® Core™ Processor supports both the high-performance requirements of traditional PC experience and the low power and weight requirements of mobile touch applications.
Intel and Artefact embarked on a journey to build North Cape, a premium consumer-focused 13” convertible computer, whose ingenious features and capabilities would illustrate the potential of detachable tablets in the future of home computing.
The focus of the project was to optimize the device both for touch and productivity, without adding cumbersome mechanisms or interactions. Our ultimate goal was to enable a seamless transition between the modes, in order to create a truly differentiated experience.
