We love a good viral gadget video as much as the next guy, so what the hell, lost Lenovo test lab tapes recovered from "a long standing acquaintance?" Ok, why not. Footage that shows the "Skywalker" holographic projection unit (ala "Help me Obi Wan Kenobi"), a laptop dropped that lands gently thanks to retractable rocket boosters, and Batman-esque armor plating that prevents coffee spills? Sure, what the hell. After all, not too many people gonna argue that outside some especially ruggedized machines (Panasonic, we're looking your way), you don't get many laptops more sturdy than a good ThinkPad. With armor.
