Eee Keyboard: An Entire Touchscreen Home Theater PC

We spotted some Asus keyboards last week, but none were nearly as potentially awesome as the official Eee Keyboard. Featuring wireless HDMI, it’s a “fully functional PC” with full QWERTY and a mini secondary touchscreen.

Asus was vague as to if/when we’ll actually see the Eee Keyboard come to market (though we’re pretty sure it’s a semi-real product), but it’s a fantastic concept for a home theater PC if we’ve ever seen one. Through wireless HDMI you could potentially make any television into your monitor (complete with audio playback) without having some huge PC taking up space.

The keyboard is packing a 5-inch built-in display, a 1.6 GHz Atom proc, 1 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB SSD, WiFi, and Bluetooth. As far as ports, it’s got wireless HDMI, 2 USB 2.0, VGA, HDMI, and audio in/out. It’s running Windows XP home, which is an odd choice for something that’s asking, nay, begging to be a home theater PC, although it’s not packing a TV tuner either. No word on price or release date, but the Asus CEO claims it’ll be available
