    On the ground is Daniel Terdiman and Eric Franklin. Once the event gets started I'll hand the live blog over to them so they can deliver the news.

    Hey, everyone. We're here at the Intel press conference. We're about 7 minutes away from it kicking off. If they're on time.

    So then we won't be able to watch intel's press conference live?

    Jam-packed in here. Very blue and the soft rock music isn't too overbearing. It's still early though.

    We don't know everything that Intel will be talking about in its presser (which starts in just a few minutes). But we do know that it will be about perceptual computing. The company says in a press release that it is bringing "Immersive, Human Interaction to devices in 2014."

    The generic mock tablet currently on the screen looks an awful lot like an iPad. Probably just a coincidence. Maybe.

    Intel will be working with partners to add "human-like senses to Intel-based 2-in-1 tablet, Ultrabook, notebook, all-in-one and other mobile devices in the future in a new family of hardware and software products called Intel RealSense technology."

    Intel's 3D sensing technology: "Your world in all dimensions." Gesture-based technology that looks to be along the lines of what LeapMotion has developed.

    Eden: We're surrounded by computing devices. Everywhere, homes, cars, etc...Not to mention the cloud. "Computing is Everywhere."

    Eden is building towards some kind of non-tactile computing announcement.

    CNET's Shara Tibken was spot on with her story in late November about Intel's perceptual computing ambitions. Wave fingers, make faces: The future of computing at Intel

    Looks like Intel is interested in building computing architecture based, in part at least, on the structure of the human brain. Much like IBM has been working on.

    Now comparing the human brain to Intel processors. Simulation Theory confirmed?

    Computing performance has been improved 3.5 million times since 1970.

    Thumbs up to Kangol.
