Retro-style pocket computers: Macintosh Pocket

The conceptual “Macintosh Pocket” was designed by Rex Sowards as a pocket computer that was envisioned for the past to provide users with mobile computing capabilities from anywhere. The device is paired with an Apple PowerBook inspired navigation trackball and features a full QWERTY keyboard. The grayscale design of the device is reminiscent of the original Nintendo Game Boy and imagines what it would have been like if Apple had been able to make a foray into mobile computing in the 1980s.

The conceptual “Macintosh Pocket” is paired with a set of physical connectivity ports on the back for connecting to old-fashioned technology peripherals such as a CRT monitor. The device maintains the style of 80s technology products, but with a much more compact design.
