eee-pc-touchscreen-demoAsus showed off a demo of the touchscreen interface that will be used on the company’s upcoming Eee PC T91 and T101H touchscreen netbooks at a press event in Germany. And Johannes from Eee has captured the video and uploaded it to YouTube.

Asus showed what I believe was a shorter version of this video at CES, but it looks like the team has put a little more work into the demo. The video now runs about 5 minutes and shows a ton of different ways users will be able to interact with the computers using the touchscreen.

At the most basic level, you can use your finger or a stylus like a mouse and click anywhere on the screen. But Asus is also developing some touch-enabled applications like a custom program launcher and what looks like a desktop widget engine filled with little programs for showing the time, weather, and other information. The video also shows a custom, touch-enabled photo browser and editor, music and video players, a calendar and schedule application, and a utility for taking notes.

It appears you can also scroll through web pages by dragging the screen with a finger.

You can check out the full video after the break.

  1. The video was a bit over wrought if you ask me. Yes, it is neat they have little touch screen apps for all sorts of things like “post-it” notes on your desktop. But why not show just NORMAL web browsing and everyday productivity as well. I care about how it works with Chrome, Firefox, or IE more then I care about niffy (but trivial) apps. I want to see it used with OpenOffice of MS Office more then I want to see a photo viewer with someone flicking photos around.
