An AIO Desktop concept for Intel focusing on webcam and media usage. While researching All-In-One computer usage, I found that a significant portion are used as hubs of connection and communication – specifically for video chatting and recording – even in households with laptops. In order to better facilitate this usage, ViewPoint uses new technologies being introduced by Intel to simplify and shift how people use webcams.
The unique casing around new camera technology provides more flexibility of the camera, inciting a more intuitive interaction with the AIO and camera. Whether in front of the computer, on the couch, or cooking across the room, the camera can accurately track you.
By tracking the clip-on microphone, the cameras precisely record the intended subject, allowing for more dynamic filming as well as freedom to move/multitask while Skyping. Additionally, the proximity of the mic encourages more natural conversation tones. When finished, the mic snaps easily back onto the base of the screen for charging and use as a stationary mic.
The internal components are positioned to optimize air flow while making the input ports easier access. The major points of usage on ViewPoint – the ports, mic-clip, and power button – are hidden, but easily accessible.
