Intel Nikiski

Intel unveiled an alluring new reference design at its Monday press conference at CES, dubbed Nikiski, which is an Ultrabook with a twist. The Nikiski featured a transparent touchpad panel that runs the length of the keyboard. The see-through panel allows users to interact with a few basic functions while the Ultrabook is closed, such as messaging, calendar items and news feeds. While the Nikiski demo unit was running Windows 7, the Ultrabook had a distinct Windows 8 tile feel to its interface. The reference design also featured Intel's forthcoming "Ivy Bridge" Core mobile processor. Beyond its 20-mm chassis, not much else is known about this mysterious Ultrabook – like which OEM partner will end up producing it. Stay tuned for more.
