At Computex 2018 today Asus has shown off a stunning concept laptop, the Asus Precog. The dual-screen laptop will be a flexible device that can be used in a number of configurations, such as laptop mode (whats Asus calls Stand mode) above, but also tent mode, fully flat or even stood up to resemble a dual-monitor PC setup (which Asus calls Book mode).
Asus plans to offer an adaptive input experience, which they call Intelligent Touch, which automatically recognizes the input device you’re using and changes the virtual interface accordingly. It can automatically adjust the keyboard location depending on where you place your fingertips, or automatically switch to stylus mode when a stylus touches the lower screen. The laptop will come with support for both Cortana and Alexa, which Asus has enabled to display on a different screen from the one you are using. It will also support Intel® Movidius™ Vision Processing Unit, so the PC will always be able to see you and respond to what you are doing with your hands for example.
According to Engadget Asus intends to release the actual device next year, and I suspect the company is waiting for OS support from Microsoft before setting the PC free.
