Computex Taipei, Taiwan’s major event of the year, kicked off right after the Dragon Boat Festival holidays. Microsoft and Intel, two consumer electronics giants, are displaying how future technology integrates with daily life with products by collaborative producers.
Take both companies for example. Besides product presentation, they also exhibit technological applications in a home setting, such as the bedroom and the living room. Intel displays the scenarios in which its products are used from the moment users get up from sleep to work.
▲The setting turns to the kitchen. Recipes, traditionally in print, are now available on a tablet. However, swiping the screen with the hands while cooking makes it greasy. Now, you can flip through the pages by using air gestures recognized by a webcam.
Microsoft’s booth focuses more on uses of tech products in various environments. For example, schools have different educational devices, such as laptops with special designs that allow teachers to see students’ reactions behind the screen. Another product is a notebook whose shapes are designed to look interesting to children.
