Intel researchers also showcased an experimental, low-cost energy sensor, which could help change the way consumers manage personal energy consumption at home.

Other technology included a video/vision system capable of recognizing hand gestures and objects, turning everyday surfaces such as a kitchen counter, coffee table or classroom desk into an interactive portal.
