Intel Urges Users to 'Look Inside'

Company executives talked about the amazing things that devices like tablets, laptops and new form factors such as two-in-one convertible systems can do, reminding attendees that while the features are cool, it's what's inside the systems that make them happen.

Software that Drives the Robot

Part of looking inside is not only realizing what the processor is enabling, but also the software that Intel creates that helps tie everything together. Here, a robot powered by Intel software patrols the sidewalks outside the convention center.

As one Intel executive said, for a long time it was Intel and Microsoft. However, the goal now is to ensure that Intel's architecture supports all platforms, from Windows and Linux to iOS, Chrome and—as illustrated here—Android.

Intel and the Internet of Things

Intel officials made a big move into the Internet of Things with the announcement of an upcoming new line of small, power-sipping chips code named "Quark." This display was designed to illustrate the various connected items, appliances and machines that will help make up the Internet of Things.

IDF is designed to keep attendees busy, with everything from keynotes to tech sessions. However, the three-story windows give developers at least a view of San Francisco.
