Intel Core Processor Challenge

Intel is looking for smaller and stylish multimedia computers, and here’s your chance to show them what you can do, and a shot at the grand prize, $300,000 to enable mass production and $400,000 to co-market the design with Intel. Sounds like this will be won by someone who already has the abilities to design a system pretty fast and looking to get some extra marketing.

Intel is offering $1m in prizes to designers and manufacturers who can come up with sexier alternatives to the “big, beige box”.

The only condition is that entries must be powered by Intel Viiv technology, using the chip giant’s Core 2 Duo processors.

Beyond that, Intel urges potential applicants to “think outside the box”. Source: BBC

The panel of judges will include Intel president Paul Otellini and Kevin Sintumuang, associate editor of GQ, they will judge it on some of the following criteria: style, functionality and features. The winners will be announced at the Intel Developer Forum being held in March 2007, so you only have less than six months to make it.
