E-Ball is Created by Aposto Tnokopvski

The E-Ball computer is a sphere shaped
computer which is the smallest design
among all the laptops and desktops.

This concept PC will measure 160 mm 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 etc.

 E-Ball is designed to be placed on two stands, open by
simultaneously pressing and holding the two buttons located.

5

 Size of E-Ball
E-Ball is very small, it is having
only 6 inch diameter sphere.
It is having 120×120 mm
motherboard.
Smallest PC ever made.

160 mm round sphere.

 FEATURES OF E-BALL
 It contains wireless optical mouse and
keyboard, and LCD projector.
 It has around 350-600 GB of Hard Disk Drive.
 It contains 5GB RAM.
 It has two 50W speakers.
 It has LAN and WLAN card and a
Web cam.
 It has Virtual keyboard.
 Dual core processor.
 Integrated graphics and sound card.
 LCD projector Paper holder

 WORKING OF E-BALL




Press and hold the power button for 5 sec.
Adjust the LCD projector.
Detach the wireless optical mouse.
Activate the virtual keyboard.
Do whatever you want.

 VIRTUAL KEYBOARD
 A virtual keyboard is a projection keyboard that is projected on
any flat surface
 Virtual keyboard basically uses the principle of sensor
technology and users work on any plane surface.

10

 Whenever we press the keyboard button, then optical
device detects the stroke and sends it to the computer.
 Virtual keyboard basically consists of three components: The Sensor module: The sensor module
serves as the eyes of the
keyboard.
 The Sensor Module operates
by locating the user's fingers
in 3-D space and tracking the
key strokes.

11

 IR source light: The Infrared Light Source emits a beam
of infrared light.

 This light beam is designed to overlap
the area on which the keyboard pattern
projects.
 The pattern projecter: The pattern projector basically presents
the image of the keyboard.
 This image can be projected on any flat
surface.
 The projected image is that of a standard
keyboard with all the keys and control
functions.

12

 Projectors
 E-BALL computer have
basically uses LCD projector.
 LCD stands for liquid
crystal display.
 LCD projectors are systems
that display or project
information or video onto a
flat surface.
 Video signals are comprised of
three colors: red, green, and
blue.

13

 IF THERE IS NO WALL
 When we are working in an open place we can use of a paper
sheet as a screen.
 Paper sheet holder is placed at the back panel of this computer.
 The holder can be opened by pressing it in the lower part

 Scenarios of use

 Advantages of E-Ball:
E-BALL is portable.
E-BALL has large memory.
E-BALL is useful for making video presentation.
E-BALL support user defined keyboard layouts.
These have greater speed than other computer.
E-BALL is very easy to use.
E-BALL is more secure than other computer.

16

 Disadvantages of E-Ball:
Normal operating systems
cannot work in these
computers.

Cost of E-BALL is very high.

There are difficult to
understand if any problems
occur in hardware part.

17

 CONCLUSION
 As the year passes, the computer size is
becoming smaller.
 Today’s technology is at its peak point
beyond what we could ever imagine.
 Our imaginations have dressed into
reality and today it has become possible
to have a whole computer in our pocket
all the time.
 At last this ball technology has taken the
computer technology to new horizons.
