Asus shows a Dual Panel Concept Notebook at the CeBIT 2009. The design is the result of the ideas contributed by users from around the world. As part of the Community Designed PC project initiated by ASUS and Intel dubbed WePC.

The dual panel concept is just one of the top ideas discussed amongst users. The dual panel offers a flexible working space which users can adapt to suit their prevailing usage scenarios, for example adjusting the size of the virtual touchpad and keyboard. Through hand gestures, handwriting recognition and multi-touch, users are presented with a control surface that is both flexible and intuitive. Users can use the dual panel concept in a myriad of usage scenarios, for example as a conventional notebook with multi-touch screens, a virtual keyboard and touchpad; a multimedia hub, in which both dual panels could combine to form a larger display for widescreen entertainment; or an E-book mode in which users can hold the dual panel concept notebook just like they would a conventional book while flipping pages through intuitive gestures or by touch.
These concepts aim to bring convenience to the user through technological innovations and user-centric design.
More details on the WePC site. Engadget has a live shot of the dual panel Asus notebook from the CeBIT 2009 floor.
