At CES 2015, we caught a glimpse into what we can expect from our technology this year like new computing experiences where our devices are truly intelligent, and some innovative applications like Intel RealSense and True Key. We announced some great partnerships with Oakley and Marriot Hotels, introduced Intel Curie, a module for wearables, and launched our Diversity in Tech initiative, pledging $300 million dollars to recruiting and retaining under-represented groups at Intel. We also showcased a drone demo from our Make It Wearable challenge winner, Nixie, and announced that our Core i7 processor will power HP ‘s Multi Jet Fusion technology including Sprout by HP, an immersive computing platform that combines multiple devices – a scanner, hi-resolution camera, Intel RealSense 3D Camera, projector – into a single device.
If you didn’t get a chance to see our keynote, you can catch it here. At the show, we also announced our newest 5th gen Intel Core processor and provided updates on our latest 14nm processor (Cherry Trail) designed for tablets. We also want to congratulate our OEM partners including Acer, ASUS, Dell, Lenovo, and Toshiba for announcing some of the newest, coolest and sleekest devices powered by Intel processors and LTE solutions. Don’t just take our word for it – check out what the industry has to say.
The Dell Venue 8 7000 was a show favorite, taking home the “Best Of CES” awards from Digital Trends, CEA Innovation Awards and is currently a finalist in Engadget’s “Best of CES” awards. The Lenovo Yoga 2 tablet with Anypen, the Dell XPS 13, the Acer Aspire R 13, the ASUS T300 Chi Transformer Book and the SMS BioSport Headphones are just some of the Intel-powered devices that were featured in the CEA’s Innovations Awards. Engadget nominated Intel RealSense technology for the “Most Innovative and Disruptive Technology” at CES. And Fast Company listed the Intel Curie, a button size module with sensors and Bluetooth technology designed for wearables, as one of the best ideas coming out of CES. Time also listed Intel’s booth as the best booth at the show.
What was shown at CES this year is just the beginning for us at Intel. We have lots more exciting, smart and new technology in store for the rest of the year.
