Intel’s passion and commitment to broadening the opportunities for people of all walks of life to both participate in and be exposed to the creation of new technologies will be in full effect at this year’s World Maker Faire*. Visitors to the booth will be among the first to work hands-on with Intel® Joule™, a sophisticated new high-performance compute platform targeted at Internet of Things (IoT) developers and entrepreneurs. Enthusiasts will be encouraged to explore more than a dozen interactive demo stations that showcase Intel’s growing and diverse portfolio of maker and developer platforms. These include popular inventor module Intel® Edison right through to hobbyist and entry-level boards Intel® Galileo and  Arduino 101* (powered by the Intel® Curie™ module). Exhibits will include a reimagined DJ experience from Thud Rumble*, featuring live performances by the world famous Invisibl Skratch Piklz*, a selection of Intel Joule-powered robots from VStone* and BLT Robotics* featuring human-like senses and a state-of-the-art musical and motion demo, among other displays.

The diverse suite of demonstrations has been handpicked to inspire and delight show visitors and bring to life Intel’s belief that great ideas and technology can help change the world, and that great ideas can come from anywhere. To highlight this, attendees can also get up close with innovations and inventors featured on Season One of America’s Greatest Makers. The Tandm* bike-sharing team, WithMe* infant monitoring wearable and the Bladeless Drone* inventor will be demonstrating their progress since appearing on the show.

Coming soon, the Intel Joule platform will join the Intel® Curie™ compute module as the technology co-stars of Season Two of America’s Greatest Makers. These tools will enable contestants to move their concept from dream to prototype and then into production at a fraction of the usual time and development cost.
