Asus Unveils Dual-Panel Touchscreen “FlipBook” PC

Asus is showing off a “Community Designed PC” concept at CeBIT 2009, that incorporates two touchscreen panels in a “FlipBook” style design. The dual-panel notebook aims to offer a more flexible and intuitive working space by incorporating a virtual touchpad and keyboard, as well as gesture control and handwriting recognition.

The design would be ideal for use as a backlit e-book reader, which reminds me of the detachable dual-display reader we saw back in June. Pages could be turned using intuitive gestures (above) that more closely resemble traditional book reading – something sadly lacking on devices like Amazon’s Kindle.

Apart from this, Asus envisions its use as a laptop or a multimedia hub and notes that the displays could be combined, to allow for full widescreen entertainment on-the-go.

For other interesting community-based designs, be sure to check out, a joint effort between Asus and Intel. Once signed up you can submit feedback on designs of other users, or even submit your own.
