Users to invent ideal portable PC. Uh-huh.

leave a comment »

Intel and manufacturer ASUS have launched a project asking people to say what they would like to see in a PC. The companies are asking people to “dream the impossible” to help design the first community-designed PC.

I know, I know. This reads like a barely-filtered PR release.

A website, WePC.com, has been set up to allow people to share and comment on ideas to “enable a global conversation about the ideal elements of a PC.”

Both companies insist the project is not simply cheap talk, saying there is a commitment to building the machine. “The spark for innovation can come from anywhere,” said Intel’s Mike Hoeffinger…

The companies will also award prizes to some for their creative efforts

That’s certainly the interesting part for me. Har!

The easy answer? Hire Jonny Ive away from Apple.
