Intel Press Conference Live Coverage

12:46 US PST:

Intel just demoed the 3D camera being used to detect foreground/background objects and remove the background from video conferencing. Now showing eye-tracking to play "Where's Waldo?"

12:43 US PST:

2D interfaces limit what you can do to a system. New 3D camera tech Intel is demoing would allow them to track your fingers in 3D to open doors and other interactions in games. Using Portal 2 as a demonstration for using hand gestures. Looks a lot like he's playing Kinect or something.

12:39 US PST:

Intel does about 220,000 end-user interviews each year. Found passwords are insecure (ed: duh!). Just demoed a log-in using a camera to look at a face.

12:36 US PST:

Intel talking "perceptual computing." Wanting to add "senses" to the PC for "life-like interactions."

12:34 US PST:

Comcast using Puma chipset to build settop boxes that will support full HD streaming, premium content, etc.

Sorry for the delay, but we're now live with the press conference!


Intel is talking AIO and the design they just showed features a battery in the back, meaning no wires on the desktop. It can be laid flat on the table and touched from any direction. Intel has dubbed this idea "bringing back family game night."
