Update: Wow, this concept is from 2014. But Dell tells me it actually exists now and we’ll see it at CES in January. Stay tuned!

Microsoft impressed a lot of people last week with its announcement of the Surface Studio, a desktop-tablet hybrid with a clever and elegant dial interface. Apparently Dell has been thinking along the same lines, because they just teased something very, very similar — right down to the dial.

A video shown ahead of a keynote speech at Adobe’s Max conference (captured by MS Power User) showed the Smart Desk being used in similar situations as the Surface Studio: illustration, photo and video editing and multi-hand media manipulation.
