What will you make? Rapid Prototyping with Intel

  • Jul 24, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

*As usual, we're looking for 2 volunteers for the event. If you're interested, please contact us.*

This month, we have 2 speakers from Intel to present the wide possibilities in their Galileo and Edison hardware platform!

Summary of the Talk

Crowd funding and the open hardware movement have created a new generation of innovators. Today more than ever, product development is accessible to anyone, anywhere. Intel has created a series of platforms to enable inventors and entrepreneurs to develop connected and wearable products. Join us to explore how your venture can take advantage of Intel’s technologies.

Our Speakers:

    Is anyone driving from San Jose for tomorrow's "Wearable from UX Design perspective" by any chance?

    Good presentations. Good people. Now that we have heard from Intel, I would love to hear from the alternatives (ARM, Nvidia, Qualcomm...)

      Good idea to invite other hardware/semiconductor vendors to showcase their prototyping platforms. I can get someone from ARM to speak about the mbed platform (www.mbed.org). BTW, I have *NO* conflict of interest--just suggestions. Mbed is supported by multiple vendors, such as NXP, Freescale, Nordic Semi, STMicro, UBlox, etc. Cheers!

      Free beer? I thought the purpose of the cover charge was to take care of expenses, not?? :-) ;-) BTW, the food was great.

    For got to ask a question of Carlos. In the coming year there were to be several Intel and Microsoft events around the Galileo board for IoT but for some reason the events have been cancelled. My Microsoft contact indicated it was Intel who pulled the plug. Any comments
