1IDF Day One: Intel Highlights Smart Devices, Security, Robots
On the first day of IDF, Intel focused on technologies going into the silicon that will improve user experience in wearables, IoT, PC gaming and more.
2Starting at the Top
CEO Krzanich takes the stage at IDF to talk about what Intel is doing to help drive the trend in the personalization of computing and the opportunities for developers.
3RealSense and the Smartphone
Krzanich shows off a prototype Android smartphone that includes RealSense cameras. Intel is working with Google to bring the technology to Google’s Project Tango3D effort though the RealSense Smartphone developer kit, which will be sent to select Android developers later this year.
4Navigating the Busy Hallways
RealSense also is being used in robotics. Here, the CEO demonstrates a robot called Relay that uses RealSense to make its way through busy environments like hotels without running into people.
5Power in a Small Package
Intel is offering a software platform for the tiny Curie module that includes the Quark system-on-a-chip, firmware, software and application software-development kit that developers can use to build new devices.
6Dance of the Robot Spiders
Krzanich uses a Curie-based wrist device to control the actions of these “spiderbots,” which are powered by Intel’s Edison platform.
7Heels Over Head
Intel demonstrated a BMX bike embedded with technologies that capture and analyze real-time motion data, from speed and altitude to identifying the stunt that was performed, such as leaping over Krzanich.
8Technology on the Wrist
Greg McKelvey, executive vice president and chief strategy and marketing officer of the Fossil Group, shows off three Intel-based wearable products, including two bracelets and a connected watch running Android Wear. All the devices will be available in the fourth quarter.
9The Reality of Intel
Krzanich and Mark Burnett, the producer of such shows as “Survivor” and “The Apprentice,” announce a new reality competition that will run on TBS next year and feature makers vying for a $1 million prize by creating Curie-based wearable and smart connected devices.
10Something for the Data Center
Rob Crooke, senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group, demonstrates the company’s new Optane offering based on its new 3D XPoint memory technology, which will offer significant performance advantages over current NAND-based solid-state drives.
11Securing the Future
Mark Cohen, left, president of ecosystems and cloud services for Lenovo, works with Intel’s Chris Young to demonstrate biometric authentication.
12The Changing Face of Games
Chris Roberts, left, CEO of Cloud Imperium and designer of such games as “Wing Commander” and “Star Citizen,” talks with Intel’s Doug Fisher about the technologies that will enable him to make his games more immersive and improve the user experience.
13Battle on the Stage
Members of CLG Red, right, the most accomplished team of female professional gamers and the reigning Counter-Strike: Global Offensive world champion, compete onstage at IDF.
