Intel to showcase human interaction technology, plus drones, at Vivid Sydney

Experience RealSense tech, and also fly some drones at this year’s Vivid festival

With Sydney’s Vivid festival just around the corner, Intel has released information on what visitors can expect to see from it at this light spectacular.

Devices using Intel’s RealSense will be present in the Transcendence installation in Martin Place. This installation will allow visitors to the festival to experience technologies such as gesture control, augmented reality, and immersive chat, with the aim being to highlight the way devices can be used with more natural and intuitive interactions.

Intel Australia Managing Director, Kate Burleigh, said Transcendence will allow visitors to feel “like they are stepping right into the future -- it’s an experience all the family will enjoy”. RealSense has so far been seen in products such as Dell’s Venue 8, which uses the technology to provide depth data in photographs.

Martin Place will also be the scene for some in-air battles as Intel will also be allowing punters to fly drones in what it calls its Game Of Drones skyward bumper race. The drones will be controllable via Intel-powered tablets, and is again designed as a showcase for the company’s technology.

“Vivid Sydney is an event that continues to push the boundaries, using technology as the enabler to bring inspiring, fun and immersive installations to life. This year we’re bringing a first to Vivid Sydney by giving festivalgoers a chance to fly their very own drone,” Ms Burleigh said.

Sydney’s Vivid festival starts on 22 May and runs until 8 June. Installations featuring Intel technology will be present at Martin Place, Circular Quay, The Rocks, and Walsh Bay, with numerous installations being controlled by Intel’s Galileo development boards.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
