Intel showed off one device currently on the market: the Intel Health Guide, a friendly-looking white box that lets patients keep tabs on their health history and communicate with their doctors via a built-in camera. The device also ensures that patients keep up-to-date with their medication.

Intels Platform Power Management seeks to cut back on the amount of power used by hardware architecture. Intel believes the initiative will lead to a 30 to 50 percent reduction in power usage.

Intel demonstrated a proof-of-concept kiosk that utilizes its developing point-of-sale (POS) technology. The touchscreen display allows retailers to suggest items based on customers past purchases, access the store inventory, and perhaps even let customers pay by mobile device via scanner.

A small touchscreen installed with a Wi-Fi/Ethernet link could allow users to access their personal calendar, email, text messaging, and address book and directory services - without the need to deploy and boot their laptop.

The Azentek Atlas Car PC concept utilizes an Atom processor to run infotainment applications inside a car, including 3-D navigation, hands-free phone capability, voice-activated email and Internet access. Two screens - one imbedded into the dashboard, the other integrated into the rearview mirror - would ensure the driver could multitask while keeping their eyes on the road.

Also on display was an early prototype of a WREL (Wireless Resonant Energy Link). While still in proof-of-concept, the WREL would theoretically charge nearby laptop batteries wirelessly via magnetic fields.

With the WREL, Intel is working towards 90 percent efficiency in wireless energy transmission. Currently, energy-transmission efficiency stands at around 70 percent with power packs.
