Intel invests $60M in drone maker Yuneec for future collaboration

This week the folks at Intel Capital have announced a $60-million dollar investment in Yuneec, a worldwide leaker in electric aviation. This investment appears to be centered on Intel's interest in drone electronics, specifically with devices like the Yuneec Electric Aviation's Typhoon Q500 quadcopter with 4K video recording capabilities. This collaboration will "bring together two leading technologies with a shared commitment to innovation" - in short, they'll be flying more soon.

Intel is finally catching up on mobile

Intel is finally catching up on mobile

This week was Intel usual time to shine at the annual IDF and, unsurprisingly, it revealed a great many things. It even had a Tango smartphone (with a NERF gun!) to show off. Now, if you've been watching the mobile industry for quite some time now, you'd know that "Intel" and "smartphone" don't usually go in the same sentence. Of course, the RealSense Tango smartphone is primarily a developer's toy, but this still makes us ask the big questions. Has Intel finally caught up with its rivals in the mobile space? Or will it be forever trailing behind?

Intel Tango phone hands-on: Android RealSense

Intel Tango phone hands-on: Android RealSense

Intel's RealSense 3D camera technology always seemed like a natural bedfellow with Google's Project Tango, and sure enough they've met up at IDF 2015. The Android phablet isn't expected to ship for developers until the end of the year, but Intel brought along a handful of prototypes - along with some apps to make use of them - to its annual event, which is where I caught up with the smartphones to see what's new.

They, Intel confirmed at its IDF 2015 opening keynote this morning, will be powered by a number of the tech company's products.

Razer RealSense camera revealed for desktop gaming

Razer RealSense camera revealed for desktop gaming

This morning Razer revealed an Intel-powered RealSense camera for PC gamers. While this technology has been used for 3D applications before - scanning in the real world, for example, Razer is bringing the technology home squarely in the gaming arena. Think facial tracking while you're using your multi-monitor setup to race cars. This camera will be launching as its own stand-along peripheral for desktop PC gaming first - but we wouldn't be surprised to see it launch on a Razer laptop in the near future.

Intel Compute Stick Windows 10 edition might be near

Intel Compute Stick Windows 10 edition might be near

It is, of course, inevitable, though probably something we didn't expect to happen soon. Intel's Compute Stick, which turns any display with an HDMI port into a PC, is barely a year old. It came with Windows 8.1 naturally, which makes it eligible for a Windows 10 update any time soon, depending on your luck at the reservation queue. It seems, however, that Intel might have a treat for those impatient to get their hands on the latest Windows, with a Windows 10 version of the HDMI dongle just around the corner.
