At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016 in Las Vegas, Lenovo unveiled a ThinkPad X1 tablet that transforms into a projector. That’s not al. The device can also be used as a laptop. And the cherry on top – the X1 also functions as a 3D camera. The camera captures images and edits them for 3D printing.

It’s all based on a modular concept. The X1 actually has detachable modules which enable it to carry out these functions. One module is equipped with a pico projector that produces a 60” display from the bottom of the tablet. The module also comes with an HDMI port. Another module comes with an Intel RealSense 3D camera.
