To reach that goal, many important engineering tasks must be addressed, starting with integration of new and improved sensors on pcs,ultrabooks devices, tablets and smartphones. Cameras that can evaluate depth, microphones that understand directional audio and touch pads with pressure sensitivity need to be standardized, miniature and implement across the ecosystem. For perceptual computing to take a firm bold devices must be equipped with the next level of intelligence and capabilities. Advances in environment awareness are becoming enabled by higher performance computing platforms, including the 3rd generation Intel core s processor family found in ultra book devices. Intel engineers have developed improved process tecnology and CPU that can maintain a real time connection with different communication interface and can provide a high level of user experience. Although many hardware challenges remain, including how to address enormous data sets and further miniature sensors Moor’s Law and Intel will continue to unlock the power of perceptual computing. Perceptual computing is not about changing and remapping current interface, so don’t expect the keyboard and mouse to vanish from the world of PCs any time soon. Perceptual computing aims instead to create new modalities that refine computing interactions. 93
