Here's an IBM news item about the Butterfly's keyboard; it includes a video clip in formats including QuickTime TM and MPEG that shows show the TrackWriteTM expanding keyboard works.
Speaking of movies, there's also a nice QuickTime TM spinning Butterfly from W3-design .
IBM's Engineering Technology Solutions (ETS) organization gives a lot of details about designing the Butterfly. And IBM CATIA®-CADAM® Solutions gives suspiciously similar detals about Designing IBM's Revolutionary ThinkPad 701C Subnotebook Computer.
The Butterfly has one major thing in common with the Boeing 777 jetliner; the same CAD system was used to design both!
