Revolution continues to rear its beautiful head in technological innovation, bringing easier living at the forefront of CES 2012. Intel's 'Nikiski' notebook has read between the lines when it comes to optimal user satisfaction in laptop performance. The previously mentioned -- and now prototype -- showcase has a touch pad that is made of glass and forms a rectangular box under the laptop's keyboard. Programmed to react to the user's various touches, the touch pad will recognize when one wishes to use the pad as a mouse and when one simply wishes to rest their wrists as they type. Where's the see through? Close the laptop.

The glass touch pad will still bode useful even when the notebook has been closed. The rectangular bar relays information without having to waste the time and battery life often wasted when one has to open their laptop and wait for it to start. If one wishes to further read up on a particular update, they can simply open the laptop and it will direct them to the story that was selected from the touch bar. Thanks to CES 2012, Intel's 'Nikiski' has opened a new window for Windows and to better living.
