ASUS and Intel just launched a new and expanded WePC community. Building on its mission to bridge innovation and technology with consumers’ needs, the new WePC.com has more ways for fans to present their ideas, interact with community members and drive product development.
As one of the first crowdsourcing communities, WePC.com empowered members to play an integral role in the PC design process of a number of cutting-edge technologies, such as intuitive touchscreen interfaces and kid-friendly netbooks. Last year at CeBIT, ASUS initiated the industry’s first dual-panel concept notebooks, making intuitive control possible. The community also supported the direction for the development of future pad devices.
The community features sections that are tailored to members’ diverse interests, such as those who value impeccable sound quality in high-fidelity home entertainment computers. Another section is geared toward serious multitaskers and “early adopters” interested in the evolving technology for pad devices. A third area is designed for parents who want to share information about how technology works in both their kids’ lives and family life.
In addition, WePC members who want to be more actively involved can apply to be part of an exclusive group that will play an integral role as the community grows and receive special perks, such as direct access to ASUS and Intel, unique product testing opportunities and exclusive events.
