Intel IDF 2008 - Opening Keynote Highlights

Postby Apoptosis » Tue Aug 19, 2008 12:32 pm

Pat Gelsinger was on stage and kicked off IDF 2008 by giving the audience an overview of this year's show. Pat Gelsinger is going to talk about Digital Enterprise and Mobility this afternoon, so he handed things over to former CEO Craig Barrett to get the ball rolling. Read on to see what was talked about at the opening keynote!

Criag Barrett then went on to show a number of innovators and their new ideas. First up showed how the Nintendo Wii’s remote game controller can be adapted to control a computer on a screen, which might be key for developing white boards on a very small budget. Johnny Chung Lee, who developed the 'hack, showed a demo using the technology that impressed the audience and performed 'multi-touch' that allowed him to pivot a 3-D image on the electronic white board. To sum things up his free software along with a Nintendo Wii remote and some Radio Shack parts and you can have a white board for just $50. Johnny Chung Lee used dry erase markers with the guts pulled out and infrared LEDs dropped in to do the presentation.

Glad Johnny Chung Lee is getting some decent recognition for his brilliant ideas.

His latest foldable screen tracking thing is really neat!
