MSI demos concept Projector PC, more

By on January 8, 2010, 1:43 PM
MSI demoed a few "industry-first" PCs at CES this week, which are a bit more interesting than the barrage of Arrandale-based notebook updates. Unfortunately, being concept units and all, there isn't a ton of information about them. Two of the systems resemble standard all-in-one PCs -- one simply boasts 3D-capable hardware, while the other is more of a mouthful.

Supposedly inspired by the elegance of a jellyfish expanding and contracting as it moves through the ocean, MSI's "Sliding Screen" all-in-one computer allows the user to slide the screen up and store the keyboard behind it when not in use. What's more, the wireless mouse can be used as a remote control as well as an IP-phone.

The final computer is the company's "Projector PC", which is a full-featured PC that includes a built-in HD projector rather than a monitor. The system can project up to 60 inches of full HD video onto a screen, wall, or ceiling with the help of an attachable stand.

As noted, these are advertised as concept PCs, so there's no telling when -- or if --they'll hit the market.

What is the point of posting this story, when there is so little information of note? Are they curiosities? Will they eventually hit the market? What are their market targets?

I have to agree with RayBay here. There must be thousands of new items to report on from CES. Why post a prototype with almost no information?

For the same reason you see reports about wild concept cars at International Auto Shows, which have little-to-no specs and will often never see actual production. The "wow" factor and uniqueness grabbed their attention at the CES, so they posted a little blurb here.

Keep in mind, the products mentioned here are concepts, the actual hardware behind them doesn't make any difference until they are actually being brought to market (if ever).
