Kinect Embedded PCs And Portables

Thus far Microsoft has been successful with Kinect (motion sensing controller-camera) for Xbox. That is the reason; Microsoft is considering implanting it into even more hardware in the future.

During the running week’s Microsoft Research Faculty Summit, the company’s Chief Research and Strategy Officer Craig Mundie said, he can predict that in near future both PCs and mobile phones will have a build-in Kinect-based camera.

Coming Soon : PCs That Argue Back

The computer crashes and we respond angrily at the flickering screen. But we may soon risk being shouted at by the machine we have just cursed.

Scientists are building a voice-activated device that can interact with people in a “natural and intelligent way”. Artificial intelligence will help it become familiar with a user’s voice, with the ultimate goal of understanding a human and speaking and behaving like them.

Intel Develops 22nm Haswell CPU For 2013 Launch

Intel is currently working on its 22 nanometer Haswell computer chips that are due to come out in year 2013. Haswell will enjoy the same power-saving technology, known as tri-gate 3D transistor technology that was first developed in accordance with the Ivy Bridge chip.

Intel boasts on its blog that their floating-point multiply significantly increases peak FLOPS (floating operations per second) and provides enhanced precision to improve their mathematics.

New CAM Storage Is Much Faster Than Any SSD

Before solid-state drives came around, data storage on PCs happened at a relatively slow pace using traditional hard disk drives which utilize a spinning disk between 3,800 RPM (less common) to 7,200 RPM (more common). Although solid state technology is faster and more reliable than hard drives, it’s still nothing compared to the speed of RAM (Random Access Memory).

With this in mind, NEC developed a new Content Addressable Memory (CAM) system that stores data without using any power. The new CAM modules are as fast as RAM modules, making it a top contender for future technology around the globe.
