  • This Twitter bubble machine is powered by Intel's Galileo — a microcontroller board based on an Intel system-on-a-chip.

  • When the appropriate hashtag is spotted in a tweet, the bubble machine starts up. Intel aims to give 50,000 of these boards to universities around the world.

  • Here's the board being used to run a set of lights — the linked smartphone app can change the colours. Galileo is aimed at students and makers while the smaller board, called Edison, is aimed at startups and developers of wearable projects.

    I invented a CPU cooler - 3 times better than previous best - better than water. Intel have major CPU cooling problems - "Intel's microprocessors were generating so much heat that they were melting" ( - try to talk to them - they send my communications to my competitor & will not talk to me
    Winners of major 'Corporate Social Responsibility' awardS!!
    Huh!!!! When did RICO get repealed?"
    BTW, I have the evidence - my competitor gave it to me.
    BBTW, I am prepared to apologize to Intel if;
    • They can show that the actions were those of a single individual in the company, acting outside corporate policy, and:

    Inventors - help your fellow inventors - share your experiences with companies - good and bad.
  • Pardon me

    Pardon to those who have seen my above post before - but I haven't got their attention yet -

    P.S. Only been posting it for 3 or 4 years now, so p'raps they haven't seen it yet.
    • Don't give up hope; perhaps by the next century, they'll notice

      and give your great, great, great, great, great, grandchildren what was due you.
  • Intel is looking behind the times.

    Nothing here is at all interesting. You would imagine that such a big company would come up with interesting and original ideas rather than mere iterations of stuff that's already available.
