Asus Project Precog concept

Asus Project Precog is a concept of the future of laptops. Dual-screens aside, it will have face and object recognition, know when you have a meeting and save battery power to make sure you have enough to get things done. 

The keyboard on the second screen will be able to predict where you're typing and shift accordingly if you're out of position.
