This guy ran into some test tapes from a Lenovo research facility (the company that took over the IBM Thinkpad).

He saw some amazing stuff going on there and posted some of the highlights that he ran across.

Among the footage that he has on his site is a laptop that automatically protects itself a split second before a liquid is spilled on it and a laptop that saves itself when it is dropped (by quickly turning on these built in fans and hovering in mid air)!

Check out the awesome video clips on his site...

(even if these aren't real they are pretty cool ideas)
