The future’s bright, the future’s wide-screen, touch-sensitive and knows how you’re feeling. Well according to netbook-makers ASUS anyway. They unveiled a range of concept products at CES yesterday: which they claim can adjust to your mood and emotions.
The three Waveface products: the Casa (an internet-ennabled TV); the Light (a tablet device); and the Ultra (a wrist-computer) use contextual information to provide you with more relevant information.
As Asus put it: the products “represent ASUS’s context-based vision of the digital life; that every element in the users environment even down to the user’s own physiology and emotional state can be sources of data to help deliver the right information and services at the right time”.
Details are sketchy on exactly how they do it, lots of sensors we imagine, but this range certainly sounds intriguing. And they look cool too. Here’s the Ultra:
We’ll post further if we hear about these becoming commercially available.
