1:47 PM – Basically a summary: Intel wants to integrate computing and take the next step and make computing more interactive

1:43 PM – Computer plays video illustrations of books and turn the page  automatically by listening to your voice and figuring your which page it’s on

1:39 PM – Learning and Education: collaborating with Scholastic using augmented reality

1:37 PM – laptop died…  finger gesture controlled games. Decent, but not any better than Kinect

1:35 PM – The keyword to trigger it is “Hey Dragon.” Copycats.

1:34 PM – Like Ok Google Now, except it doesn’t work
