Ever wondered what goes on behind Intel’s closed doors? Well, you won’t have to play the guessing game any longer – Intel’s given us a behind-the-scenes look at what its Asian operations have been working on recently.
At the Intel Future Showcase, which it hosted in Singapore for the first time, the company boasted some of the next-generation works of its Asian team, highlighting the fact that Asia is no longer a manufacturing site, but one that drives design and tech ideas.
Since most of you are inquisitive by nature, we thought we’d share some of these technology works with you.
Galileo Air Piano
No, it doesn’t involve you literally playing the piano in air. But rather, the Galileo Air Piano makes use of Intel sensors to present a circular music instrument that lets you play it without having any physical contact with it. Imagine that – your dreams of becoming a music creator/composer without a background in it could become true!
Galileo Colour Def
Did you know there’re about 250 million people on earth that have colour blindness? Thought that number would be much less, didn’t you? As such, one of Intel’s teams has been working on Colour Def, a wearable device that helps such people perform simple tasks like determining if fruits are ripe or if food is fully cooked.
Fleet Management Systems
This one should come as no surprise to you, it does exactly what it says – manage fleets. Real-time data is produced by sensors placed on commercial transport vehicles, which then is fed back to a system to create a picture of what’s happening to a vehicle at any given time, in addition to the stats of the entire fleet in general.
Next Unit of Computing
Does the name sound like something only techies will understand? It’s actually more interesting than you think – it’s basically a PC so small, it fits into the palm of your hand. And you don’t compromise on its energy efficiency and performance either, meaning it can enrich your home entertainment experience as a gaming or even a HD movie-viewing device.
Basis Health Tracker
Of course, there’s no denying that everyone wants to be in the wearable technology space, and Intel is no different. This wrist worn device essentially measures physiological metrics such as your heart rate, sleep pattern, and stress levels and charts it onto a web and mobile service. It might not look as snazzy as MICA, but it lives up to its function.
