Stylus Operable Computer with Wireless Keyboard in Storage Bay

Patent filed December 26th, 1991

Take a pen-based tablet PC. Stick a removable wireless keyboard in a compartment in the bottom. Ingenious, at least sorta - although I hope the minimalistic three rows of keys indicated in this drawing aren’t meant to be a literal representation of the proposed design. Not seen in the sketch: a fold-out stand that let you prop up the PC at a comfortable viewing angle.
