Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) has announced that it will create a computer that will have no wires at all by the end of next year. The company is also working on a unique biometric facial recognition technology to deplete the need of passwords. Discussing this project in a program on CNBC, Kirk Skaugen, Intel PC Clients Group senior VP, said that Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) wants to achieve security mechanism for its users by focusing on eliminating the passwords that are chosen from alphabets and numbers. He said that Intel will create a system that will let users log into their machine and websites by their face instead of text. Skaugen also said that Intel wants to get rid of ‘crazy cables’ and make a completely wireless PC.
“As you know we bought McAfee a few years ago and that’s part of what we are going to do is basically create a service that enables you to log into your PC and get access to those websites. So at the end of the day, all you got to do is to remember to look into your computer and you’ll be able to access everything that you need access to,” said Skaugen.
Answering the question about how Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) will be able to practically achieve the wireless technology, Skaugen said that in 2003, Intel already achieved a part of it by developing Centrino, which could connect to devices wirelessly. The important challenge for Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) now is wireless charging. He said that to achieve wireless charging technology, Intel will focus on furniture so that whenever you want to charge your wearable device, mobile, laptop or PC, you just place it on your table to get the job done.
