HP CTO Shane Wall On Topping Apple At PC Design, The 3-D Printing Revolution And The Future Of Computing

I think you see some of it in the footprint today, of where we're going. I think you see integration of communications with compute, that come into the platform. We released a set of PCs that have integrated the telephony itself into the system. And then by using different form factors you have the ability to go into the conference rooms themselves. So that now what you have is the compute and the communications integrated into the room. Over time, you start getting smart surfaces. We have one that sits behind me where I am here, where you can write on a wall, and I can record the strokes on the wall. And that's integrated in with the PC.

It becomes much more aware, and it uses the resources around it in the room itself.
