ASUS presented Microsoft Surface like product

Posted on Monday, June 08 2009 @ 23:27:20 CEST by

Hexus reports ASUS was showing off a concept of the ASUS Seamless Experience at Computex, a product that resembles the Microsoft Surfacea bit.
Demoed as above, the technology seems to resemble Microsoft's Surface - but we have assurances from the on-hand ASUS spokesperson that this is indeed something different, and that it's something better.

So how does it work, and what it does it do? Well, at this very early stage it's all a bit speculative. According to the ASUS spokesperson, the prototype notebook sitting on the table has a webcam that can somehow recognise all of the items placed in front - consequently allowing it to tell the table to display relevant information.

Trouble is, after a few minutes of bold claims, we finally managed to get the ultimate confession - there are no new tricks at work here, instead, to show how the "concept" could one day work, ASUS has used a large reflective surface with a projector housed underneath. To help it recognise the items on the table, each item is tagged with a specific label. Sounds a whole lot like Microsoft Surface to us, but ASUS seems adamant that it'll one day be more.
