The future of slot machines? Damian Koh/CNET Asia

SAN FRANCISCO--This interactive slot machine with a 46-inch touch screen is one of the more eye-catching displays at this week's Intel Developer Forum here.

In a nutshell, this machine is an electronic gaming machine, a point-of-sale device, a digital sign (the panel above the main screen), and a kiosk all rolled into one. Of course, it comes with the prerequisite handle, a holder for a martini glass, and Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system. No word on when we'll see one of these commercially. So far it is only a proof-of-concept for a "connected" casino. But representatives said the technology is ready for commercialization.
