Stepping back to the days when people first began incorporating human senses into technology, the first two senses they applied were probably those of sight and sound.
Over the years devices were invented and developed, culminating in what remains today as the most significant single technological device: the computer. The first personal computer emerged decades ago and eventually evolved into other forms, including desktops, laptops, netbooks and tablets. Apart from changes in size and appearance over the years, each one of these device's functions and intelligence continue to be their highlights.
But what would happen if two of these devices combined forces? What would happen, for instance, if a tablet married a laptop? What would the resulting hybrid look like and how would it work? How might it respond to human needs?
Such a device has already been developed: the Ultrabook, a cutting-edge technological hybrid of laptop and tablet, unveiled last week by Intel Microelectronics (Thailand).
In addition to several key distinctive features including ultra-fast processors, extended battery life, and optimised security, what makes the Ultrabook so powerful and special is that they elevate their users' sensory experiences.
"According to research, users love touch," said Datchaneeporn Prukwattananon, its marketing manager.
Ultrabook devices not only vastly improve users' visual and auditory sensory experiences, but also stimulate their sense of touch. The new Ultrabook comes with a high-performance touchscreen, allowing users to have fun with the display and interact with it physically. Some Ultrabook devices own a new, innovative convertible feature, coming with either a detachable or slider keyboard, enabling users to interact with it as a tablet or as a full functionality laptop computer when they need.
"Sleek and stylish, the new Ultrabook devices are a great combination of cross-generation technologies that go beyond just providing convenience and flexibility to users, and they will be mainstream next year," said Datchaneeporn.
