Precog is supposed to launch in 2019 Image: Asus
Asus showed a glimpse of their new dual-screen AI-powered laptop, codenamed Project Precog, at the ongoing Computex conference being held in Taiwan. The Precog is virtually made of two separate screens hinged together. One of the screens doubles up as a touch-screen keyboard when needed. In other instances, it can also function as a full-fledged screen.
The project is still in the concept phase, but Asus managed to demonstrate a working prototype at Computex, hinting that the design is in an advanced state. Asus said the finished product will be available sometime in 2019.
Users can use the second screen either as a control device, like a keyboard or an independent screen altogether. For example, you can play a video on one screen and work on on the other at the same time. Asus said it can help programmers have a code running one screen and surfing the Internet on the other.
If you are looking for a more hands-on typing experience, you can also attach an external keyboard to it.
Project Precog also supports Windows and Amazon Alexa. Asus also announced the ROG Phone gaming smartphone, VivoWatch BP health tracker and the ZenBook Pro laptop at the event.
