等不及微软了,自己做一个Courier

Harlequin

One modder just couldn’t wait for Microsoft’s Courier, so he took his Dell mini 9 and added on a USB touchscreen display. And surprisingly enough, it works.

有个改装爱好者实在等不了微软的Courier了,所以他给自己的Dell mini 9加上了一个USB触摸屏。出人意料的是,他成功了。

Nicknamed Harlequin, the device allows you to type and write on the right (the touchscreen) and read on the left (the original mini 9 display). Thanks to Windows 7’s native handwriting and speech recognition, those issues have been solved at the base software level.

他将这个装置命名为Harlequin(丑角,滑稽角色),你可以在右边打字或手写输入(就是那块触摸屏),在左边阅读(原mini 9的显示屏)。多亏了Windows 7内置的手写与语音识别功能,这些问题在基本软件的层面解决了。

Of course, the mod isn’t quite complete, its non-existent hinge mechanism defining this more as two interacting tablets than a sleek, compact book. So working on the system becomes a Ten Commandments enterprise involving lots of wires and juggling. But we’ll see whose product is done first, the modder’s or Microsoft’s.

当然,这个模型还不是很完善,它并不存在合页结构,这就决定了它更像是两个互动的平板机,而不是一个平滑的、紧密的本子。因此要改进这个系统还需要大量的改造。但是让我们拭目以待谁的产品先完成,是这个改装爱好者的呢还是微软的呢?
