World leading semiconductor manufacturer Intel was here at keynote event today to start off CES 2016 on Wednesday, January 6th. Last year, Brian Krzanich was at the same stage here at Venetian Press room reveling Intel Curie, a button sized wearable chip, and Intel Edison, the smallest PC module.
“We care more about user experiences than hardware specifications now these days.” Brian stated. Technology grew rapidly for the past couple of years. If we look at the current trend where friendly UI, compatibility, device synchronization, and great OS support is needed, I think Brian is right. Along with this statement, He wanted to revolutionize the user experience to the next level.
“We put out many great technologies last year, and this year, we enhanced it.” Brian said. Today, Intel and many of their partners came here at keynote to demo what and how can Intel’s latest technologies can evolve and be used for. Let’s take a look.
Free runner Jason Paul was at the stage doing his regular free running activities. But how is this related to Intel’s innovation? You will be surprised.
