Will Drones Be A Major Part Of Australia's Future?

What part can drones play in Australian society? Last week Intel hosted a ‘Drones For Good’ panel as part of Vivid Sydney, inviting the likes of one of the ‘Innovation Partners’ behind Australia Post’s drone trial, Dirk Van Lammeren; Aussie company Ninox Robotics’ Managing Director Marcus Ehrlich, and even Minister for Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop to weigh in on the potential of drone technology in Australia.


Intel Is Making Modems For The Next iPhone

Intel announced back in May that it would be temporarily exiting the the smartphone market, cancelling plans for its Broxton and SoFIA CPUs.

Now there is news of Intel re-entering the market with a bang, as the supplier of modems in some models of Apple’s next iPhone.


Look Behind The Scenes At Intel's Vivid Sydney 100-Drone Acrobatic Performance

Image Cache: Can’t make it into the middle of Sydney for Intel’s acrobatic drone light show? We’ve got a look behind the scenes at the 100-drone setup, created by Intel and Ars Electronica, on the steps of the Sydney Opera House.


This IoT Gadget Lets You Know If Drivers Are Flooring It

It doesn’t look particularly exciting: after all, it’s just an innocuous box. But it’s something that could soon become ubiquitous for delivery drivers, courier companies and transportation fleets — and insurance companies are going to love it.


And Here's Something That I Sure As Hell Won't Be Doing In VR

So while I don’t typically have any issues with virtual reality, one demo at Computex this year left me heavily, heavily nauseous. But that’s OK. Maybe it’s a once-off; maybe the calibration was bad. Maybe something else was to blame. It hasn’t soured me on VR one iota.

That said, this next experience can bugger right off.


A VR Game Nearly Made Me Sick And I Still Want To Play It

During Intel’s keynote for Computex 2016, the chip manufacturer showcased a multiplayer VR experience called Raw Data. The game was playable at Intel’s booth for the annual tech show, so naturally I had a go.

What I didn’t expect to get was a nausea and queasiness that lasted for hours. What I expected even less was the fact that I enjoyed the game so much that I’d give it another go.


One Pouch Sold Me On The Internet Of Things

I’d been sitting down for about fifteen minutes listening to a presentation. It was the first morning of Computex proper, and it was about the Internet of Things and the power of The Internet of Things. Intel was telling attendees about the power of IoT devices, with small low-power chips, that can change the way we do everyday things.

I’m a hardcore gamer, and so it’s not a topic that I get naturally excited about. But then the presentation ended and we were given the chance to talk to some of the inventors, entrepreneurs and students trying to create real world solutions. And then I saw a pouch.


Intel Targets The Internet Of Things, Video And VR At Computex 2016

Deep learning, the Internet of Things, and virtual reality. They were already some of the biggest themes of this year’s Computex, and during their keynote conference Intel continued to hammer home the importance of all three.

But perhaps the biggest element of the chip manufacturer’s keynote was the battlegrounds they outlined for the future, battlegrounds that further highlight the company’s transition away from just being a PC company.


There's A Smart Pillow And It Scares The Shit Out Of Me

To kick off the first day of Computex, Intel held a “Meet the Makers” event showing off some prototypes and proof of concepts showing some of the ways their chips are being used in devices that could one day improve society.

At this event, there was a pillow. And it scares the shit out of me.


Intel's New 10-Core Extreme Edition Broadwell-E CPUs Are The Most Powerful Ever

Today is the opening day of Computex 2016, and to mark the occasion Intel has a brand new processor family. Designed for the hardest of hardcore enthusiasts, Intel’s new 14-nanometre Broadwell-E chips, the Core i7-69XX and i7-68XX, are its most powerful ever. Forget your garden-variety quad-cores and dual-cores; the Intel Core i7-6950X is an entirely unlocked, overclocking-friendly 10-core monster with support for quad-channel RAM and four graphics cards. If you can’t afford the circa-$2200 price tag for the newest top-end silicon, though, new 8- and 6-core CPUs are also on the way.
