asus-conceptAsus is unveiling a few more details about that dual screen notebook concept unveiled this morning. It turns out this PC concept is based on suggestions from computer users who contributed their ideas through the WePC web site. WePC is a collaboration between Asus and Intel, and the idea is to crowdsource the development — or at least the conceptualization of tomorrow’s notebooks.

The concept is still a work in progress, and Asus is seeking more suggestions from users regarding the idea. The idea behind the dual panel netbook is that users would be able to adjust the size of the keyboard, use hand gestures, handwriting recognition, or multi-touch features to interact with the computer. The notebook would also be capable of multimedia tasks, like displaying widescreen videos across both displays.

You can check out a few more pictures of the dual screen notebook prototype after the break.

  1. you have made me so happy, i thought of this about a year and a half ago and my wish came true, and it seems like its comming out at a time i can afford it.

    congrats

  2. this is completely awesom. I would hope that they change the design a little and put the screens closer togethor without to much of a border so that you could use it like a widescreen for viewing movies. I also hope that they have a better set of apps for the touch screen part because the apps for hp s touchsmart arent very good. I will definetly buy one when it comes out if they do those things. It is easy to get people to make apps if you set up a way for them to get paid for it. that is why hp has no third party apps.

  3. If we’re talking radical and for release a few years from now, I’m sticking to what I wrote on the Intel site – a rollup epaper touchscreen, a detachable keyboard that can fold lengthwise, and a resulting device that, when not in use, is the size and shape of the cardboard tube at the center of a roll of paper towels.

    But yeah, I agree, the dual screen concept as shown here is pretty doggone stylin’. Especially if they incorporate haptic feedback.
