Taiwanese PC manufacturer ASUS has introduced a ridiculously brilliant product at Computex, a dual-screen laptop. Yup, it’s real, and it’s called the TAICHI. At first sight, you may think the TAICHI is just a laptop with ultra-thin design, but looking closer, you will see full-HD (1,920 x 1,080-pixel) screens on both sides of the lid.

Check out the video after the break to see it in action, and don’t miss out the wonderful moment of ASUS CEO Jonney Shih revealing the awesomeness of TAICHI.
