Intel

  1. Build-Your-Own-Robot Kit Will Be Available Commercially By the End of the Year

    Next Holiday Season will be crazy, y'all.

    By the end of 2014, Intel says everyone and their dog will be able to buy a kit to build their own 3-D printed robot. The package will start at $1,600 -- a relatively small price to assemble your own ally for the inevitable uprising.

  2. Intel Wants to Save Steven Hawking’s Speech

    Stephen Hawking is one of the most well regarded scientists of our day, and for decades now he has relied on technology to allow him to speak. Hawking suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly called Lou Gehrig's disease, and as his condition declines, so does the rate at which he can communicate. Now, Intel says they can use new technology to increase Hawking's ability to communicate, which has dropped to as little as one word per minute.

  3. New Coke Machine Can Take Your Picture, Has a Microphone, Is Confusing

    Intel showed off a new fancy Coca-Cola machine at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco today. Why did Intel show off a glorified sugar water dispenser? Well, that's because the device happens to house an Intel Core i7 microprocessor. It needs all that computer horsepower to function its many doodads, like the microphone it has for no apparent reason. The machine also comes equipped with a camera, which would theoretically be used to gather demographic information, but is thoroughly creepy regardless.

  4. Intel Servers Run in Mineral Oil Bath to Cut Energy Use, Cooling Costs

    Intel servers have been getting a spa treatment to try and cut energy costs and it seems to be working. The company has been running some of its servers submerged in experimental mineral oil baths for a year in an effort to cut down the energy they use running and cooling the machines -- and the expense associated with it, lest anyone think this is a totally altruistic endeavor. After a year, the results are in, and they're pretty promising.

  5. Ex-Intel Engineer Admits to $400 Million In Information Theft

    There are a lot of expensive things out there, but information can be one of the priciest. If you were going to rob Intel, one way to go about it would be to try and make off with bags full of chips, or you could be like ex-Intel engineer Biswamohan Pani and take some documents worth somewhere between 200 and 400 million dollars. Why? To advance his career at AMD. But for documents worth that much, Pani will get nothing but some jail time.

  10. What it Means to be Innovative

    We're currently living in an age where we as a population are less impressed by new technological advances. The computer age sped up the rate of invention and innovation, and children of this age are tuned to simply be less impressed. The high frequency of viable new inventions and incredible innovations made us grow accustomed to them. Amazingly, we actually expect new inventions and innovations to drop at an alarmingly high rate, and rarely, nowadays, do they impress, even though they should. However, another way to look at our collective apathy toward modern day invention and innovation is to wonder if, possibly, the technological age in which we live redefined what it means to be innovative; so it's not that we're less impressed by innovation, but we don't necessarily know what it means to be innovative anymore.
