Intel showcase ‘Sponsors of Tomorrow’
Intel showcase ‘Sponsors of Tomorrow’ technology exhibit for the first time to the public, in conjunction with Dublin City of Science 2012 (the year long public engagement stream of ESOF 2012).
The exhibition features Intel’s latest products and designs for the future, offering the public the opportunity to experience the intelligence and vision the future holds. The Sponsors of Tomorrow Expo travels the world visiting all Intel sites, but significantly this is the first time it has ever been shown to the public.
Commenting at the launch today, Lucinda Creighton TD, Minister of State for European Affairs, said,
“It is fantastic that Intel has chosen Ireland as the first country in the world to show its Sponsors of Tomorrow Expo to the public. The exhibit gives a glimpse into the exciting technology of the future we can expect to experience and is sure to capture the imagination of students. The technology sector continues to be a major employer in Ireland and this event will help to inspire young people to pursue careers in STEM related sectors.”
Eamonn Sinnott, General Manager Intel Ireland and Vice President Technology Manufacturing Group, said,
“What you see here today is the Sponsors of Tomorrow Expo, which travels the world across all Intel sites showing employees how our technology and our products impact the world. Today, in the Science Gallery, as part of Dublin City of Science 2012, I am so proud to able to bring this amazing exhibition of Intel Technology, as a showcase to the public for the first time ever. I think Dublin as City of Science is a very fitting occasion for this to happen as we help to stimulate public awareness of, and interest in, science and technology.”
Some of the technology at the exhibit includes a robot running on the latest Intel technology, an augmented reality demonstration where users can drive their own formula one racing car, 3D sports activities such as surfing and snowboarding, touchscreen technology and concept tablets, ultrabooks, smartphones and gaming technology of the future.
The exhibition is open between 11am – 4pm on Tuesday 22ndMay and 12pm – 5pm on Wednesday 23rd May.
