Dell demoes dual-screen, foldable and Switch-like concept devices

We imagine you have plenty of thoughts on this one. Local streaming platforms like Nvidia Shield and cloud gaming systems like Google Stadia and PlayStation Now have similarly attempted to give PC gaming more flexibility, all with varying levels of success, but all of them are conceptually more complex than what Dell has made.

While the traditional console makers battle it out for the premium space in your living room, Nintendo has paved the way for handheld gaming to stake a claim as the true future of gaming with the Nintendo Switch. It has an nearly identical overall design (with a unique Alienware spin, of course) and similarly-placed buttons and joysticks.

Concept UFO doesn't just look like a Switch.it has a lot of the same features as well.

As you can see in the image above, Concept UFO boasts an 8-inch (1200p) display at the center.

"PCs will become more intelligent, self-aware, and user-aware".

The difference is that the Concept UFO is a full-fledged Windows 10 PC, shrunk down and created to allow users to play PC games on the go.

We're not sure exactly how much more powerful it will be, but those who have gotten hands-on time with the UFO at CES this year say the device managed to tackle a decent array of games easily. Theoretically, the Concept UFO has the same library of games as the entire PC landscape. No other company could have done what Nintendo did with the Switch, which is why nobody else is making a similar gaming device. As of yet, no price or release date has been announced - this is, after all, a concept. While Dell hasn't revealed any detailed specs - it's just a concept, after all - it would be powered by 10th-generation Intel Core processors. You can then use either of the two USB Type-C ports on board to connect the screen to a monitor or display to enjoy games on a larger screen. Alienware emphasised though that this is just a concept, and is not now available for purchase. Regardless, it's an interesting idea, and we look forward to seeing what (if anything) Alienware does with it over the coming months.
