SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 13,1997 — A device that takes the wrinkles out of bills that are too “crinkly” for vending machines, chewing gum enriched with bone-strengthening calcium and a pocket-size computer that helps users pronounce words. These are among the inventions submitted by the 10 middle school student finalists in the Bay Area as part of Intel Corporation’s “Invention of the Future” contest. Tonight, at a special reception hosted by Intel at the “America’s Smithsonian” exhibition, Dr. Gordon Moore, Intel chairman emeritus, will honor the 10 student finalists and announce the grand prize winner.
