Hanhahahahahaha.

At the exact time the Intel narrator says "Intel has chips...", there are a few frames of a Raspi which has NO INTEL CHIPS ON AT ALL.

hahahahahahaha

Not to mention Arduino boards seem to be on the video every few seconds ;)

Cool. Intel says use Raspberry Pi and Arduino to make wearable computing devices.

We should be ribbing on them for years over that! :)

The logo on the pi in the video is clearly visible. Surely that breaks the Trademark rules ;) .

I just wonder if Intel are preparing a bid for Broadcom

That'll bump my shares up in price! They've taken a right battering recently.

I worked for intel as a temp contractor in 04 and I can tell you that most of the people working for them are arrogant and clueless. When I was there the "Netburst" p4 was their big product and they had no idea how bad it was. They were still claiming that x86 64-bit was pointless because they wanted people to buy Itanium.

Jessie,

Intel has somehow managed to survive a lot of arrogance and clulessness for forty years or more.

Staring with the 8086, as in the first PCs. What a crock.

There was the 286, arguably the most brain damaged architecture ever commonly accepted.

There was, around the same time, the 432. A chip so radical and complex nobody could use it. Slow into the bargain.

There was the i860. Potentially stunning floating point performance but again so complex that no one could program it or write the required optimizing compilers for it. Even Intel, I found out at an Intel conference, did not know how to get the peek FLOPs out of it.

Then there was the Itanium. I have no idea what that was about but seems to have become another boat anchor.

However, somewhere in the middle of all this mess they do actually have guys who know how to advance the chip technology physically. They do own their own fabrication plants, unlike AMD or ARM.

Seems Intel has just realized they need to grab a share of that low power phone, tablet, "wearable" market that ARM is doing so well in.

We can see Raspberry Pi in 1:02 until 1:05
What are they doing to that Raspberry Pi? It looks like they are cooling it with some type of spray?

Unfortunately this video doesn't really go into the details sufficiently - as if they think it may scare off their customers - but this is the point at which they inadvertently let the cat out of the bag.

Each droplet contains a bare 286 processor (sadly, no floating point).
They're actually spraying it with nano-scale x86 cores to up the clock-rate and exponentially increase the data-throughput of the device - this also works for under-arm deoderant, by the same mechanism. Hence the tag-line "wearable"
