Asus takes user interface to the next level
Termed "Reality-to-Virtual," what looks like a clamshell laptop with dual LCDs is a showcase of how motion sensing can be combined with context-based displays.
Forget multi-touch technology and face recognition. At its Computex booth in Taiwan, Asus displayed concept designs that take the user interface to new frontiers.
Termed "Reality-to-Virtual," what looks like a clamshell laptop with dual LCDs is actually a showcase of how motion sensing can be combined with context-based displays. With a sweep of your hand, for example, the Webcam will detect the motion and switch the upper LCD to the requested application. The lower portion is really a touch-sensitive LCD that can be used as a keyboard, media control, and photo-editing panel. As this is only a concept model, the device shows just a video of its future capabilities for now.
But right next to it is a working prototype of a new way to watch your DVDs. The widescreen player provides visual cues and allows direct control of the playback and eject features. You can check out a short clip on how it works below.
