That is pretty cool except for one thing. The floppy drive is not realistic. A 1/2" thin cannot accomdate a floppy 3.5" floppy disk that has a length of 3.75 inches (yes I measured one; it's 3.5" wide and 3.75" long).
The protruding tongue, by the way, is an SD card - a welcome upgrade to the original Macs single 3.5 inch hard-jacketed floppy disk drive, which sported a full 400 kilobytes of storage!
From CURVED Labs website, they state the slot also contains speakers, microphone, camera & SD slot:That is pretty cool except for one thing. The floppy drive is not realistic.

Their site has the english translation at the bottom. Lots of beautiful photos from all angles. I think they created a really gorgeous redesign.30 years ago Steve Jobs wanted to make computers more user-friendly, so he gave the original Macintosh a face. In the new Macintosh much of the original elements are resumed. However, at the spot located under the screen, where the drive for 3.5-inch disk sat, you will now find a slot for SD cards, the FaceTime camera, speakers and a microphone.
The Mac supports all popular WiFi standards and Bluetooth. You find already the new USB 3.0 port and a Lightning port. A built-in battery allows you to set up the Mac at different work locations on the fly. Like the current iPhones and iPads the Mac would be available in silver, gray and gold - including color-matched keyboards and mice.
Apparently the guts are from an 11" MBA. So yes, an actual Mac, not a Hackintosh.Wow! Very cool! Is this an Apple approved thing or basically a hackintosh in a fancy suit?
Speaking as someone who loves classic Macs, I wouldn't get one for reasons of practicality and price.They need to bring this back as a special edition, i almost guarantee they will make a profit by selling that
Wow, that is much bigger than I had expected it to be. (hence my original comment wondering if it had a tablet LCD in it)
I still like it quite a bit, but I'd love it if the screen / body were the same size (width and height) as the original - although with a "retina level" DPI.
So in addition to SD reader, they packed speakers, microphone and camera into the "floppy slot"? Colour me impressed.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this just a rendering? Although he doesn't acknowledge it on his website, it seems to have all the hallmarks of a Martin Hajek render (although it could equally be by some other designer using a similar style).
Are there any photos of the back?
How about a direct side (profile) view, rather than the 3/4 profile?
Like the "thinner" iMacs, seeing the whole thing isn't the same as seeing a carefully chosen perspective.
