Intel is hoping to reduce the amount of time it takes for an idea to become a tangible reality.
The company isn’t just talking about its own items, though, as it is hoping its own latest product will allow developers and entrepreneurs to see their visions come to life. During the opening of the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco the company unveiled Joule.
Joule, as described by the company, is a sophisticated maker board with an Intel® RealSense™ depth-sensing camera targeted at Internet of Things (IoT) developers, entrepreneurs and established enterprises.
The board allows people to take their concept into the prototype stage and then into the production stage in a fraction of the time and the development costs.
The platform is a high performance system-on-module in a tiny, low-power package making it ideal for computer vision, robotics, drones, industrial IoT, VR, AR, micro-servers and other applications that require high-end edge computing.
Now available, Joule comes in two models – 570x and 550x. The Intel Joule 570x developer kit is available for sale at the 2016 Intel Developer Conference in San Francisco, and will begin shipping in September through Intel reseller partners.
