Ev­ery­one has been try­ing to re­move phys­i­cal key­boards from lap­tops, with some go­ing as far as cre­at­ing vir­tual touch­pads on their lap­tops in lieu of phys­i­cal keys.

ASUS has joined the party with their Precog ‘ lap­top’. Cur­rently a con­cept de­vice, Precog is able to use AI to help you use the de­vice and com­plete tasks.

Smart enough to de­tect whether or not there’s a mouse or key­board around, Precog will be able to sup­ply you with vir­tual ones if there isn’t. It will also be able to pre­dict where your fin­gers are over the lap­top and ad­just its key­board ac­cord­ingly.

And did we men­tion that it’s also sty­lus com­pat­i­ble?

Ba­si­cally, this lap­top – which will be avail­able in 2019 – is so smart that it will make you even more wor­ried that the ma­chines will out­smart us all and take over the world.
