Intel Continues to Share its Vision of Tomorrow's Technology

About a year ago, we learned that Intel had hired science fiction writers to help the world's largest chipmaker come up with what sort of technologies we'll be using tomorrow and beyond. Fittingly, Intel calls this The Tomorrow Project.

Spearheading Intel's campaign to see into the future is resident futurist (and "future caster") Brian David Johnson. According to Intel, his mission is to develop an actionable vision for computing in 2020. To accomplish this, he's using ethnographic field studies, technology research, trend data, and even science fiction to provide Intel with a pragmatic vision of consumers and computing.

Now a year later, Intel's showing off at IDF that it is still pursuing tomorrow. Andrea Ferrario, one of our editors from Tom's Hardware Italy, was on hand to capture the latest developments in this innovative effort.

Below is the initial conversation session. It's a long one, so make that popcorn first.

The next three are demonstrations of future software technologies. As they are from our Italian team, they were titled for their readership, but the contents is completely in English. We apologize for the noisiness in the videos.
