The star of the show here is the company's just-announced sixth-generation Core chips, which will be powering future computers of all shapes and sizes.

Here's a "wafer" -- the disc used in manufacturing that contains huge quantities of the new chips, before it's cut up into individual components.

Here's Intel's Kirk Skaugen showing off a drone navigation system equipped with the company's RealSense tech. First seen earlier this year at the CES trade show in Las Vegas, the module attaches to a drone, and stops it from colliding with objects.

There are six modules inside the system. A drone can use the system's cameras to help find its way around its environment.

This is a new version of Intel's Compute Stick, which is a tiny PC that plugs into a display via an HDMI port. We weren't impressed with the performance on the last version, so here's hoping this souped-up edition packs more punch.

This setup can be used to record 360-degree video clips, which can be navigated in your browser. You might have seen these online -- indeed we've experimented with it ourselves before. Intel asserts that its chips will do an excellent job of handling 360-degree video.
