LXer: ‘Franken-Products’ Abound at Taiwan Computer Show

Published at LXer:

TAIPEI, Taiwan — A young woman in a white cocktail dress sat in a chair with a purple shawl wrapped around her head. She wore high heels, bulky brown sunglasses and a surgical mask. Moments later, the shawl and mask were ripped off and she sprang into song. A model’s floral fingernails tapping a computer with Microsoft Multi-Touch software, one of many touch-screen devices shown. It was all part of a musical revue by Micro-Star International celebrating the release of a new laptop. The rather eccentric display hardly seemed out of place at last week’s Computex trade show — the annual computer industry gala held here in Taiwan’s capital city. This year’s show signified the computer industry’s move far beyond traditional desktop and laptop PCs into more exotic devices. If dancing girls and loud music at an exhibitor’s booth helped attract attention to these strange new computers — or explain them — all the better.
