Getting to grips with 'RealSense' technology
3 February 2014 Last updated at 01:14 GMT
Later this year, chip giant Intel will incorporate a new technology into laptops, PCs and tablets.
RealSense is aimed at making our interactions with them far more intuitive - rather than simply relying on touch, keyboard or mouse.
For example a RealSense camera houses a 3D sensor which can interpret your body's movements and even facial expressions.
Richard Taylor was given a demonstration of how the technology can be paired with a 3D holographic display to enable a new wave of interactions.
