Intel shows off four-screen laptop
The Tangent Bay prototype, which Intel showed off at its developer forum this week, has three touchscreens along the top of the keyboard.
Intel used its developer forum (IDF) in San Francisco this week to show off a prototype of a laptop with a main screen and a series of three smaller ones along the keyboard.
Codenamed Tangent Bay, the three along the top of the keyboard are OLED touchscreens, and can be flipped through like a slideshow.
They can be used to display photos or even application windows, by dropping them into the slots from the main screen.
For those who like multi-tasking, the windows can then be flipped back to the main LCD screen with a single touch.
As cool as the Tangent Bay laptop appears, Intel gave no timeline for when it might go mainstream or be created by a manufacturer.
"These are great ideas, I do hope that they evenutally end up in the market," said Dadi Perlmutter, executive vice president of the Intel architecture group.
