Mockup of the iMac of the future looks incredible

Recently, we heard news that Apple had filed a patent for a very different kind of iMac. The patent details a slick, mostly glass, all-in-one (AIO) design with a distinctly futuristic vibe. Until now, we've only had some fairly uninspiring line drawings to give us an idea of how this radically different design might look – but Concept Creator on YouTube has come to the rescue with a 3D rendering based on the patent details. 

If this video is anything to go by, the potential new design is going to look incredible. There are some aesthetic similarities to the current iMac (incidentally, our pick of the best computer for graphic design, and the best computer for video editing right now). The curvy junction between the screen and its stand and the generally minimalist, sleek approach are both present, but other than that it's an entirely new ball game. Take a look at the mockup below.
