The next time you shake a fist at your laptop or give it the death stare for losing an important file, watch out: It may react to you. Intel showed off technology at CES that gives devices the ability to detect gestures and emotions by the user.

The chipmaking giant's vision is that people will be able to control their devices more naturally with technology that can better recognize hand and finger movements, combined with advanced voice and facial recognition.

Acer, Dell, Hewlett-Packard and Lenovo are among the companies that will incorporate Intel's new technology in their computers in the second half of 2014.
