Intel Meets the Jetsons

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Intel Labs has been at the forefront of showing off some of the groundbreaking technologies the world has seen over the years.

The world's largest chipmaker held its Research@Intel Event yesterday, demonstrating some of the technologies the world can expect to see in the years to come. The demonstrations were put into four different stations: Enriching Lives, The Data Society, Intelligent Everything, and Tech Essentials.

A little over two years ago, the company started collaborating with outside academic researchers to create a global network of seven Intel Science and Technology Centers (ISTCs) and six Intel Collaborative Research Institutes (ICRIs). Each center allows its researchers to advance computing in a much faster way than ever before, as they work on advancing fields such as embedded, cloud, social and secure computing, as well as others. The event shows off the fruits of that labor, and what the world can expect to see in the future.

"The majority of our research is conducted by Intel's own researchers but we are delighted by the quality and quantity of research coming out of the ISTCs and ICRIs," said Justin Rattner, Intel's Chief Technology Officer. "Importantly, the deeply collaborative structure of these engagements is based on an open IP model benefiting not just Intel and researchers, but the high technology industry and human society at large."

Here's a look at what the Santa Clara, Calif.-based tech giant had to show off as some of its most innovative new ideas come to life.
