CES 2009: ASUS – Innovation Inspired by ConsumersTue, Jan 06, 2009 - 10:00 PM
Eee Top and Fold concept
The Eee Top is also designed to be used anywhere in the home… whether it be in your kitchen to look up recipes or in the bedroom or living room to jot down some notes or make a list of things to do. You can also use it as a collaborative tool in the home or office by using the touch screen!
That’s right, you can use the touchscreen to navigate the Eee Top to browse the net on ASUS’ built in Opera Touch browser from the Eee Bar with quick launch icons. You can also use the Eee Memo application to make notes on digital PostIt notes!
The notes can be written with the provided stylus or simply with your finger. Navigation is processed through directional and momentum based gestures.
We were able to catch a glimpse of the Eee Top running a clock demo at the CES Unveiled Press event. There is not much going on in the clip, but you can at least see one up and running.
ASUS also unveiled a concept PC that was inspired by oragami. Here two separate PCs can function in a multi-user mode to work off a single interface. It seems you can either lay the screens on top of eachother and work on a single screen (possibly a touch screen) or place the PCs back to back in order to collaborate and work together with other people.
