Another new PC prototype from Intel is "Mohawk River", a design aimed to result in something the firm calls "ambient PCs":
Intel is enabling a computing experience that will be increasingly immersive, connected and intelligent. In the future, PCs must adapt to people's needs by being always on, always aware, always sensing and intelligently notifying. Providing an early look at how computing will evolve, the company demonstrated the Intel ambient PC prototype (code-named "Mohawk River") to show how the laptop can:

  • Be always ready and proactively adapting to users.
  • Anticipate user needs and commands by leveraging human presence sensors, 180-degree cameras, exterior secondary displays and Intel local voice ID.
  • Connect with people using closed-lid intelligence, allowing for seamless transition from open lid to closed lid and back again.
  • Continue working efficiently, getting relevant information and staying connected even with the lid closed when in transition.
  • Amplify planned or adhoc meetings with 360 video conferencing.

    Intel also demonstrated how it is implementing a human presence approach using hands-free login with Windows Hello* and IntelĀ® Context Sensing Technology to deliver advanced laptop experiences that help people focus, be always ready and adapt to different roles throughout the day.
