Ink screen and LCD are integrated
At this year's Computex2018 in Taipei, Intel Intel showcased a concept personal computer product 'TigerRapids'. The biggest highlight of this product design is that it abandons the traditional notebook C-side keyboard design. The B-side is a 7.9-inch LCD screen, while the C-side uses an E-INK electronic ink screen. When the notebook is closed, it looks like a hard kraft paper notebook, about the same size as a tablet computer. It is a veritable 'notebook' computer.
This Tiger Rapids laptop does not belong to any host manufacturer, it is a conceptual product designed by Intel. It has a 7.9-inch touch screen and a matching electronic ink screen panel.
Intel also designed a set of software compatible with Windows 10 for Tiger Rapids to ensure that the electronic ink screen can act as a touchpad, virtual keyboard, handwritten notepad and reader. At the same time, the laptop can also realize double-sided reading through backflip.
Due to the small size of the screen, this prototype device is very light to use, and the battery life has reached 7 hours, which is enough to compete with retail products on the market. What Intel needs to do now is to improve the durability of notebook computers to ensure that the Tiger Rapids concept notebook computer will not have a large number of repair problems when it is mass-produced.
Tiger Rapids does not yet have an official host manufacturer, but Intel has begun contacting Asus, Acer, MSI, and Gigabyte to find partners. As long as the price is low enough, new laptops can easily get popular Recognized.
