At Computex 2019, Intel showed off two concept laptops. The first, a thin-and-light concept, was Twin Rivers.

Here's Twin Rivers in cookbook mode.

And here's why they call it cookbook mode...

The second display has an onscreen keyboard, but you can connect a physical bluetooth keyboard for sessions involving extensive typing. (Like writing a story from the Computex show floor, for instance.)

Here's Honeycomb Glacier. It's a deliciously titled gaming laptop concept.

The top display is 17.3 inches, the bottom is 12.3 inches.

The most impressive feature is eye tracking. You can have up to three windows on the bottom display. A midscreen camera knows what window you're looking at, whether it's on the top or bottom display. It then puts you in command of that window.

In the background here is Asus' ZenBook Pro Duo, which is similar to Glacier Honeycomb but without the ergonomic lift.

We'll get laptops like Twin Rivers on the market within one or two years, Intel said. A Honeycomb Glacier-style gaming rig wasn't given any dating indication.
