Intel CEO Brian Krzanich took the stage during Lenovo’s Tech World Keynote yesterday and offered a look at some of the chip maker’s latest technologies. This included 360 Replay as well. Sports fans can get a 360-degree view of games with 360 Replay, helping them get a new perspective on their favorite sports.
A new way to watch sports
Previously, 360 Replay had been confined to broadcasts and TV networks, which used the technology while recapping plays. Now, according to Intel’s CEO, everyone can use this technology on their tablet or personal computer at home. For instance, Krzanich says users can swipe across a basketball court and experience standout moments in any way they wish.
“Additionally, with the Lenovo Y900 and Intel 360 replay technology, fans can now be more immersed in the sports experience and soon can choose how they view game highlights from almost any perspective,” says a press release from Lenovo.
Lenovo unveils Intel-powered smart shoes
Lenovo also showed off a pair of smart shoes at the event. The company showcased a pair of kicks just about this time last year also. The kicks had the unique ability to display and determine their wearer’s mood. It is not yet clear how the concept wearable actually worked or why anyone would possibly want to do such a thing.
It seems highly unlikely that the new Intel-powered smart shoes will get as much attention as the new Project Tango handset that Lenovo also showed off at the press event. The latest take by the company “on connected sneakers does appear to be a fair bit more subdued than the product it showed off last year, says TechCrunch.
The smart shoes appear to have the sort of fitness data collection that one would expect from such a wearable, including calorie intake, tracking the user’s distance, etc. However, not many details are available on the specs. In addition, there is some other functionality built into the product, possibly motion tracking, along with LED embedded in the soles.
Lenovo CEO Yuanqing Yang presented a pair of the smart shoes to Intel’s CEO, and said, “So [he] can walk in the cloud.”
In pre-market trading today, Intel shares were trading down. Year to date, the stock is down almost 9%, and in the last three months it is up by over 3%, while in the last year, it is up almost 1%. The stock has a 52-week high of $35.59 and a 52-week low of $24.87.
