Intel’s quest to make smaller computers is coming along nicely. The technology company will begin selling the Intel Compute Stick this year, which allows users to turn their TVs into a giant computer. All you need is an HDMI port.
HP has announced the introduction of the Pavilion and Stream mini desktops, which are intended to be low-powered, energy-efficient PCs that can fit in the palm of a hand. The idea isn’t new, but these are rare enough to be notable. The design is also suspiciously reminiscent of Tupperware.
Lenovo has announced a new 2015 refresh of the ThinkPad Yoga with the return of a processor that should raise some eyebrows. It is also expanding the line with new 14- and 15-inch models that will not be using the same kind of processor the smaller 12-inch version.

News about Google Glass has slowed to barely a trickle over the last few months, but that looks set to change with Intel entering the picture. This is not just a switch of processor, but an overhaul of the entire device to get it working for a full consumer release.
Intel’s RealSense camera is like installing an Xbox Kinect into a tablet; without making it too thick. We had the chance to experience what it can do at Intel’s Future Showcase in Singapore, where two versions were on display; one on a reference design tablet, and the other installed into a laptop.
