Honeycomb Glacier – that's the name of the 2-screen gaming laptop prototype that Intel introduced at home with their experience in Computex this year. Many people find it similar to the Asus ZenBook Duo when there is also a smaller sub-screen located right on the keyboard, but in fact Honeycomb Glacier is much more special with dual hinges – a link between the secondary display and the keyboard below. , 1 link between the secondary monitor and the main screen above. Specifically, please watch the video below. (The small Asus ZenBook Duo in the left corner is placed for easy visualization).
The prototype Honeycomb Glacier is shown here with the upper 15.6 "FullHD screen and 12.3" 720p below. The bottom screen can hold up to 3 applications at once. Intel staff at booth also said that the secondary monitor was supported with all existing content creation applications, including Adobe.
Maybe, many of you will feel that for ordinary users like us, the 2 screens are a little extra and unrealistic. However, this machine is for the "niche" market and has its special customers. Digital content players / gamers or streamers will love this machine because of the need to use multiple monitors, watch multiple content at the same time, and manipulate their faster. For example, when editing a video, you can view the entire image content on the upper screen, the screen below to timeline, film strip, edit, cut audio, … more comfortable and work better, Much more convenient.
And, the most interesting thing on this machine is the extra screen that can be erected – it's really impressive. You just need to use your hand to adjust the screen, raise the secondary screen and of course the main screen above is also upgraded. You can drag to adjust the sub-screen to be squashed together with this keyboard or set it up at an angle or even nearly vertical (as I see it is not vertical or perpendicular, but only reached only).
Being able to build this extra screen also means that you don't need any accessories to lift your computer's screen to eye level, the computer itself can do it. It will help our eyes to observe 2 screens in a very convenient way, without neck strain.
In addition, Intel has equipped Tobii's eye-tracking technology for this product with 2 Tobii cameras to keep track of which screen your eyes are looking at, automatically move the mouse cursor or connect the keyboard to that screen. This will allow us to use it faster and more conveniently. Not to mention, when you look at the screen, the remaining screen will turn off to help save battery, increase battery life.
