When Stacy Wolff in HP’s Design Studio first showed me the new ENVY x2, I did one of those old cartoon Jaw drops. In fact, a couple weeks back during the Intel Developer’s forum a couple weeks back, I demoed the ENVY x2 and got several similar looks from the crowd. The recently-announced Hybrid PC looks like a sleek little laptop…until you decide to disconnect the screen and take it with you as a tablet. That led to a whole conversation about how the ENVY x2 came to be made.
Stacy took a few minutes to not only explain the highlights of the ENVY x2, but also brought out some one-of-a-kind prototypes that never saw the light of day…until now. The interview is a little on the long side, but it’s totally worth it!
So, for this installment of the HP Design series, hit play to learn more about what went into making the ENVY x2.
Here are a couple quick highlights to keep your eyes peeled for in the video:
A full video tour of what makes the ENVY x2 so cool.
Watch for when Stacy shows me how securely the screen docks with the keyboard thanks to the clever use of magnets.
Depending upon the product, there can be hundreds of mock-up designs of an HP computer. In the case of the ENVY X2, there are several crates filled with mocked-up machines.
There are teams all over the world helping shape and influence HP’s designs.
