I'm still here at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2010, and just had the chance to try out something cool. The Intel Atom processors are lightweight x86 processors for use in a whole range of small devices. And being x86-based, they can run modern desktop operating sytesms. At the beginning of 2010, Intel released the n450 version of the Atom. And to help engineers and hobbyists get started, they've created a "development board" which is a small circuit board containing an Atom processor, 1G of SO-DIMM memory, and several ports including USB 2.0 ports, a video port, and two ethernet …

I'm here at the IDF 2010 conference in San Francisco, and during this morning's keynote session, I had to the opportunity to see some pretty cool technology. One of the things that they demonstrated was essentially the next generation of handheld game controllers. Think of the Wii remotes, but with more accuracy in 3 dimensions. Wii remotes use triangulation and technically only detect two dimensions (although clever programming in the Wii helps pick out a certain amount of a third dimension). But these devices they demonstrated had full three dimensional handling. The new technology relies on the latest and greatest …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]17164[/ATTACH][URL="http://www.intel.com/idf/"]Intel Developer Forum 2010[/URL] starts today in San Francisco. The city is decorated from the airport to downtown with banners and ads by Intel with clever catch phrases like “Sponsors of Tomorrow,” “Shake hand with the future” and “Big thinkers, welcome home.” Today is the first of a three day event designed to introduce some new products, technologies and innovation from Intel Corporation and some of its industry partners. The aim is also to gather around “big thinkers” programmers, developers, engineers and designers and encourage them to innovate [with Intel ingredients of course]. On the agenda are some keynotes from …

Intel Thursday unveiled something [URL=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikola_Tesla]Nikola Tesla[/URL] could only dream of. The company this week was demonstrating the ability to transmit 60 watts of electrical power across three feet of thin air with 75 percent efficiency. I had a toothbrush once that recharged without wires. Every time the handheld part was placed on the base, it used [URL=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_induction]electromagnetic induction[/URL] to charge the batteries from the base with no electrical connection between the two. The technology Intel was demonstrating at its annual [URL=http://www.intel.com/idf/]Intel Developers Forum[/URL] this week was based on the very same principles. One practical application would be to install base …
