Tomahawk, WI 06/25/2014 (Basicsmedia) – Intel’s Customizable Robot
It seems that Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) has some unique plans to rule the technology world, as it is out in the market with its new innovative customizable robot. Isn’t it a like a wonder story where you would be able to design your own robot and get a printout of the same on a 3D printer. But yes it is possible as per the Intel’s new innovation, which is possible through its Edison chip worth $1,600.
Moreover, the company will provide a kit with motors, batteries, design files and a number of customizable apps, which would help the users to choose the way they want to look and operate their robot.
Brian David Johnson commented that this robot is a part of Intel’s “21st Century Robot Project”, where the company wants to put this innovation in the hands of the mob. He added, one would be able to customize root of his own wish, converting it into a dog doing a tango and then adding an alarm to it to wake you up whenever you want.
Intel For Apple
According to Timothy Arcuri, Cowen & Company (NASDAQ:COWN) Analyst, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Intel are currently in natter with each other for the manufacture of baseband processor for iPhone7. It’s quite possible Apple would give an order for the supply of the processor required in its upcoming model. Baseband processor is the technology used in smart phones to handle the radio functions.
On the other hand, Arcuri also mentioned that the conversation might be merely Apple’s way to strengthen its bargaining capabilities with Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM). Qualcomm is the current manufacturer of baseband processor for Apple which comes through Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s (NYSE:TSM) foundries. On the contrary, Apple’s decision to move to Intel might be influenced by Intel’s promise to bring faster chips and silicon photonics for HPC. Well now it’s quite possible that Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) would be able to crack Apple.
