Intel Smart Bowl turns heads at CES 2014

See also

Those who attended CES 2014 were expecting to catch a glimpse of the "blockbuster" gadgets. You know the ones with all the bells and whistles, huge screens, bright colors, fanfare and orchestras accompanying them. Well, as great as those gadgets are and as much as we "ooo" and "awe" at them, many don't make it to production because they are there to show off the capabilities.

Well, one of these prototypes that has everyone hoping to see it out in stores comes from a very simple concept. You know that bowl that most people have around the house that's used to store junk like keys, change, wallets, phones, etc. What if that bowl actually had a purpose?

The Intel Smart Bowl, which was shown for a brief moment during Intel's presentation at CES 2014, may be able to charge the devices that are placed in it. It does this using magnetic resonance technology which is what A4WP (Alliance for Wireless Power) is all about. Of course, only devices that support the technology will be able to reap the benefits of the Smart Bowl, and so far it has only been paired to work with Intel's smart headset.

Not much information was provided by Intel as far as specs, pricing, and availability except for the fact that it's 10 inches in diameter and user magnetic resonance technology (as stated before). Once it does, if it does, hit the market Intel might have hit themselves a home-run.
