ASUS has unveiled a new touch screen concept notebook at the annual CeBIT 2009. Here is more info:
ASUS has unveiled a dual panel concept notebook that is the result of the ideas contributed from users from around the world. As part of the "Community Designed PC" project initiated by ASUS and Intel, the concept is still a work-in-progress which requires continued feedback. ASUS is thus taking the opportunity to encourage users to participate in the development of this concept notebook. Additional information regarding this concept can be found at WePC.com.
The dual panel concept is just one of the top ideas discussed at WePC.com. The dual panel offers a flexible working space in which users can adapt to suit their prevailing usage scenarios, for example adjusting the size of the virtual touchpad and keyboard. Through hand gestures, handwriting recognition and multi-touch, users are presented with a control surface that is both flexible and intuitive. Users can use the dual panel concept in a myriad of usage scenarios, for example as a conventional notebook with multi-touch screens, a virtual keyboard and touchpad; a multimedia hub, in which both dual panels could combine to form a larger display for widescreen entertainment; or an E-book mode in which users can hold the dual panel concept notebook just like they would a conventional book while flipping pages through intuitive gestures or by touch. These concepts aim to bring convenience to the user through technological innovations and user-centric design.
