Intel at CES 2011: Laptops, Netbooks, WiDi and Demos


Wireless Display and Object Recognition

Wireless Display

Intel demonstrated Wireless Display 2.0 to us and showed us how easy it is to configure and use WiDi. The software comes with any new Sandy Bridge laptops and the interface is very similar to how you would use a wired display.

In order to complete the WiDi ecosystem, you'll need to purchase these wireless display adapters (for about US$100) and connect them to your display (either a TV or a projector). Equipment manufacturers such as Buffalo, D-Link and Netgear will have solutions ready for the market in the first quarter of 2011.

 

Object Recognition

Intel further refined their object recognition technical demo using a more powerful Sandy Bridge desktop processor. A camera overhead recognizes objects and interacts with them by projecting images on the objects via an overhead projector.

Task manager shows how each thread is utilized in the system. According to Intel, the new Sandy Bridge processor has enough horsepower and processing threads to make object and gesture recognition a reality.

And we have a video of Intel's technology demonstration of real-time object and gesture recognition.
