If Intel’s Honeycomb Glacier prototype wasn’t bizarre enough, the company has also showcased a dual-screen laptop made out of fabric. Called Twin River, the prototype laptop has a chassis made out of fabric.

Intel is using 12.3-inch, 1920 x 1280 touchscreen displays for the prototype and has wrapped both of them together in a fabric. Under the hood is a quad-core, 15-watt Intel U-series processor with an incredibly thin vapour chamber cooling solution. Unfortunately, Intel didn’t allow media to photograph the proprietary internal design but did give a glimpse at what the device looks like.

At this point, we have seen way too many foldable devices that include both Mobile and Laptops but the idea of wrapping the screen in the fabric is something new. Unfortunately, the device is still a prototype which means there’s a long way to go before we see actual consumer-ready hardware from Intel or any other manufacturer.
