Today was the first day of Computex, the annual information technology show that takes place in Taipei, Taiwan. First held in 1981, Computex has become one of the most expansive computer and technology shows in the world. And this year's event is no exception; from ultrabooks to Windows 8, if it's important in the world of computers, it's at Computex.
According to Computex's official website, the show attracts over 36,000 international buyers each year. Almost 2,000 exhibitors manning more than 5,000 booths vie for attendees' attention with promotional information technology products, latest technologies, and popular trends.
Mashable reports that some of the most stand-out products at this year's Computex are tablets; for example, Intel alone announced that "at least 20 more Intel-powered Windows 8 tablets are coming this year." Windows 8 will be officially released later this year and will surely shake up the tablet market.
"Natural interaction" ultrabooks are also all the rage. According to PC World, Intel asserts that ultrabooks are the "next big thing" -- look out for products "equipped with voice recognition, face tracking and touch features." The development of screens, sensors and other technologies will allow for this "natural interaction" going forward.
Computex will continue through Saturday, June 9, and many more hot, new products are expected to be unveiled. Is there any product or technology you're most looking forward to?
