ABSTRACT Todays technology is at its peak point beyond what we could ever imagine.
New inventions and innovations are emerging on daily basis. No one would have seen such amazing thing before.
This e- ball computer has taken the computer technology to new horizons. You may have seen many other inventions of this kind but what is unique in it is that when it is closed no one is able to guess that this ball contains a whole computer inside it.
When you will open you will find a complete set which includes display screen, virtual keyboard and a mouse. This is known as E-Ball which is designed by Apostol Tnokovski. He was aiming to create the smallest PC in the world when this idea comes in his mind.
E-ball is basically a new technology laptop which is designed to increase the ease of portability and working without compromising any hardware like keyboard, mouse, and hard disk space. It is the smallest model of this new era.
Size of electronics gadgets are diminishing
Optimization techniques are being used.
Designer Apostol Tnokovski has given the idea of smallest PC
It has projector instead of display unit
It has virtual keyboard
Its diameter is 6 inch and it has 120x120 mm motherboard inside it.E-Ball
Contd.The E-Ball concept pc is a sphere shaped pc which is the smallest design among all the laptops and desktops.
This concept PC will measure 160mm in diameter and it was designed for Microsoft Windows OS.
This computer has all the features like a traditional computer, like, mouse, dvd, large screen display, mother-board, hard drive, web came ,modem, LAN& WAN slots etc.

Projector used in E-BallPico Projector :A tiny LCD projector is embedded inside the E-BallWith this Pico projector you can project a full size media onto whatever is near at hand.
Scenarios of use
Working in Offices.Watching movies.Chatting on the net.Making presentations. Teaching through slides.Can be implemented in Spacecraft, and other industrial areas.
Software interfaceFirst E-Ball is designed for Microsoft windows.
The software interface of E-Ball concept PC is highly stylized with icons.
AdvantagesPortableUser defined KeyboardNo need of external displayUseful for video presentationsMotivation for further research
Designed for Microsoft windows onlyNeeds careful typing with the virtual keyboardPlane surface required for keyboardDifficult to understand hardware problems
As Year Passes Technology is developing day by day.Size of electronic devices reduces to save money as well as space.Today it is possible to have a whole PC inside your pocket.
