Looking into the near future, Intel highlighted its vision for gesture-controlled ultrabooks with built-in tilt sensors and touch-free credit card readers that would allow online shoppers to swipe their credit card over their ultrabooks rather than having to type in their details to make a purchase. The company plans to launch its biggest marketing campaign in nearly a decade to promote ultrabook technology, starting in April.
