Intel Is Making Smart Glasses That Won’t Make You Look Like A Cyborg

If your idea of future is something like The Island, then perhaps uniformed fashion and geeky looking smart glasses are OK. The truth is, wearing a high-tech looking glasses is not in sync with many’s fashion sense and it also make others around feel uncomfortable for the facts that you may not be listening to them, or you may be secret filming them. Perhaps that is why smart glasses did not really take off despite the technology is there to mass produce them for consumers. However, that may change with Intel Vaunt Smart Glasses. With Vaunt, Intel has finally wiped the dreadful high-tech look off smart glasses and present to us, a really normal looking glasses.

Intel Light Drones Open For Winter Olympic, Made New World Record

It looks like Intel is determined to be the name in the new-age fireworks with the use of drones. Not content with having just 100 drones up in the sky in 2015, the processor maker put 500 drones into the sky in Germany in 2016, ‘dancing’ to a live orchestra, which bagged it a Guinness World Records, and this time, Intel has outdone itself again with 1,218 Intel Shooting Star drones which lit the night sky at the Winter Olympic 2018 opening ceremony in PyeongChang, South Korea, on February 9.

Intel Unveiled X-Series Chips, Include An 18-Core Beast That Cost $2,000

Whenever a newer and faster processor is announced, I relish the day when I had a Logitech computer powered by a then-decent Intel 80286 processor and today, I did it again when I hear that Intel has up the ante again with the new Intel Core X-series family processors which includes the new Intel Core i9 processor brand and the Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition processor – the first consumer desktop processor with a whopping 18 cores and 36 threads of power. Eighteen freaking cores. Wow. That’s mind-blowing.

Xiaomi ‘Intel Inside’ Smart Sneakers Rolled In $640K On Mi ‘Crowdfunding’

It is well known fact that China’s prominent maker of handset, Xiaomi, makes more than just handsets and tablets. Fitness tracking shoes is one of the many other things it makes. It is listed on the company’s website, but this pair you see here, called Xiaomi ‘Intel Inside’ Ultra Smart Running Shoes, is a tad different. But before we dig in more, there’s something that I think we need to clear the air first. On contrary to what other blogs perceived, this pair of smart sneakers is not called “90 minutes.” Yes. It does have what read like “90 minutes” in Chinese at the beginning of the product name, but it can also interpret as 90 points, as in a score, but anyways, that’s not the point.

Intel’s New Memory Is No Miracle Solution For Your Current Slow PC

So Intel has announced a new kind of memory that promised speed up your computer, particularly those who are still on traditionally HDD. When I first read the headline, I was elated and then I learn to take the excitement a notch down (or maybe even more). Why? This “magical new memory”, the Intel Optane Memory, won’t be a magic potion for your slow, aging computer. For it to deliver as promised, it has to be paired with a 7th-gen Intel core processor and to be honest, if you have that, I hardly doubt your computer will be any slower than mine aging 2008 iMac.

Intel Shooting Star Drones Light Up Lady Gaga’s Show At Super Bowl

In yet another prove that lighted drones are here to replace traditional fireworks as the light show of choice, Intel, together with NFL, Pepsi and Lady Gaga, pulled off the first-ever drone integration during a televised event during the Super Bowl event on Sunday, February 5, 2017. The result is as expected: spectacular, made even fantastic by the Lady’s unequivocal stage presence and performance. Mind you, I do not in anyway worship Lady Gaga, but I am not going to lie, as a normal being, I sometimes can’t help but to jive to her tunes.
