ASUS has a new concept notebook on the books, one that in fact looks like a book. The Dual Panel Concept thought up at WePC.com gives users a customizable interface depending situation. You can set both screens up to display text if you want to read a book, then quickly switch one screen to a keyboard to take notes or a touch surface to edit photos. The possibilities are endless, leaving it up to the programmer or user to find the perfect balance of function for the given application, instead of the original hardware designer. This type of all-inclusive design could mean one device could handle the functions of a netbook, tablet, E-book, media player at the touch of a button.
Currently the Dual Screen Concept is only vaporware or a small step above, but we can always hope for these types of ideas to trickle down in future models. For more concept models and other cool designs people are coming up with, checkout WePC.com.
