EXOdesk spreads its 36-inch touch-screen wings
The EXOdesk put on a show at ViewSonic's CES booth. The 36-inch touch screen plays nice with multiple operating systems and should cost around $1,300.
LAS VEGAS--Thehad lots of people drooling over the big touch-screen interface that's reminiscent of the , minus the honking big price tag.
The screen is set up at an angle right in front of a standard desktop monitor. You can access apps and desktop shortcuts, check the weather, pop open a virtual keyboard, and write directly on the screen.
All that screen space goes to good use when you open multiple apps, run a feed of social-media alerts along one side, and have an on-screen keyboard that looks like an old typewriter. My preliminary impression is that it will be a very flexible computing platform.
The EXOdesk should be a good fit for all those people who have embraced tablets and other touch-screen devices. It's a natural evolution to blow the concept up to giant size and park it with your desktop.
The EXOdesk is due out in September of this year for around $1,300. Though it's appearing with ViewSonic at CES, the hardware manufacturer has not yet been settled.
