Intel’s new sensors will bring a significantly better user experience. Over the past few years, Intel’s main database for its computer and web server microprocessors has been represented by the customers who used the company’s items. Nowadays, those information resources are the sensors linking gadgets to the Internet of Things with Intel looking to install them everywhere.
The organization’s officials presented a variety of different projects during the CES 2016 event this week, all having the objective of embedding receptors in the highest possible number of locations, including outfits, sports equipment and drones.
People are going into the next era of technological innovation where customers are opting for top experiences over gadgets, said Intel’s representatives during their public presentation. The advanced concepts that allow a better user experience will be incorporated into the items that may dominate the industry later on.
To begin with, the company will be inserting its small Curie chips into this year’s Winter Games. These tiny processors will be installed onto the snowboards used by athletes during their competitions, particularly the Men’s SlopeStyle or Big Air activities.
According to the company, this will offer the sportsmen in-depth efficiency data, such as in-air movements, leap size and range. To prove the effectiveness of their idea, the officials welcomed a couple of BMX riders, with sensors incorporated into their bicycle tires and bars.
A different collaboration with Red Bull will provide Curie features to other fitness equipment, so even moderate activities can benefit from complex data in real time. To show this during Intel’s keynote, a sportsman somersaulted onto the stage, executing some parkour movements combined with gym exercises, while the sensors monitored every action.
For live activities, Intel has teamed up with Replay and they announced that the firm’s freeD feature will establish a higher standard for sports lovers everywhere. The feature changes videos into complete 360-degree content streamed in 3D, so viewers can watch the athletes’ moves from basically any angle.
During 2015’s CES, the company announced its collaboration with Oakley in order to concentrate on intelligent eye wear, so this year people could see and test the results of this partnership. The Radar Pace is a smart eye-wear that the consumer can control via voice commands.
The device will mainly be used as a physical exercise and exercise trainer, and will be released in at the end of this year. Tech fans could also admire some fitness-focused apparel from fashion technology producer Chromat. They presented an “adrenaline outfit”, which can expand the clothing when the person wearing it is excited, and the sports garment that ports air when people perform their workouts.
