Finnish startup Eve-Tech built an online platform where technology enthusiasts not satisfied with existing products could join and offer feedback for the company's second device, a Windows laptop-tablet hybrid computer called the Eve V. The idea garnered interest from Intel and Microsoft, with the former investing a six-figure sum. For the past 12 months, about 1,000 active members of the forum have been offering suggestions and voting for features, specifications, components and design elements for the Eve V in a project codenamed Pyramid Flipper.

The body is crafted from a single piece of aluminum and comes in a range of colors. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny demotivational posters gallery.
