Computers powered by the sixth-generation Intel Core processor Skylake can be woken with a vocal prompt.
Tying in nicely with Windows 10’s Cortana personal-assistant feature, the newly revealed CPU feature is constantly listening out for your voice.
Just say “Cortana, wake up” or “Hey Cortana” around a sleeping Intel Skylake-powered Windows 10 PC or laptop, and it’ll spring out of hibernation.
It’s the kind of feature that we’ve seen in select Android-powered smartphones (such as the Motorola Moto X) before now, as well as on Microsoft’s Xbox One console (provided you have a Kinect peripheral). It’s the first time such a feature will have been seen on computers, however.
