Asus teases a new ‘thin’ hybrid device that will be revealed at Computex 2014

Teasers of any kind –whether they’re for movies, TV shows, video games, or tech– can be awfully exciting. However, to make them enticing and juicy, they have to be done right. With that in mind, we can’t wait for next week, because Asus has something new in store. However, we’re pretty confused as to what it/they could be, which just adds to our excitement.

Asus has released a pair of Computex 2014 teaser videos on YouTube. The first one, entitled “The Next Incredible Thing,” is a clip of a man writing “The next incredible thing” on a piece of white paper. Once he finishes writing, the “thin” portion of “thing” lights up, and then shatters into multiple bits of luminousness. Okay, so this device will stress thin-ness. Got it. It’s the second teaser that really throws us for a loop though.

Asus’ other Computex 2014 teaser video is called “What will it blend?” It features a man wearing a lab coat, with a tablet, a notebook, and a smartphone on a table surrounding a blender. The engineer (we’re presuming he’s playing one here, at least) then proceeds to place each device into a blender, which suggests that Asus may release something that combines all three devices into one.

A laptop-smartphone-tablet hybrid? Consider us officially stumped. Asus of course has a history of melding product types, its PadFone smartphone/tablet combination just representing one example. However, by tossing a laptop into the second clip, and mixing it with two mobile devices, its hard for us to figure what Asus is up to.

We reached out to Asus to see if they’ll offer any comments about their teasers. If we hear from them, we’ll let you know what they tell us.

Asus will be revealing their mystery product on June 2, 2 a.m EST. In case you’re wondering what the deal is with the weird time, the presentation will be taking place in Taipei, just hours before Computex 2014 officially kicks off on June 3.

In the meantime, feel free to check out both teaser clips below, which are courtesy of YouTube.
