Intel® Future Contest

What is this contest about?


The Intel® Future Contest introduces a new sensing technology. The technology can be embodied in a device, a set of devices, a system, platform and/or services. It is for personal, not industrial/large business use. The goal of the contest is to understand how you would use this technology, and what it would look like. Due to its very small size, gadgets embodying this technology can be worn/carried/used 24 hours a day.


Imagine 5 years into the future. You have on you (or with you) this new sensing technology. It can see, hear, remember and understand everything around you all the time.

  • What would you use it for?
  • What job could it do for you?
  • What kinds of people would benefit from using it?
  • How would it look, what shape/form could embody the sensing technology?
  • What would it replace?
  • What new powers would it give you?
  • How would you imagine interacting with it? How often would you use it?
  • What effect or influence could it have on your life?
  • How would you name your idea?
