Asustek’s technology for the future
Recently the Bits Blog featured a really interesting posting about the radical devices that manufacturer Asustek is working on. The devices include a wearable smartphone bracelet that finds, filters, and provides the user with the right information at the right time; a TV that works with gesture commands; and a tablet with location based services.
