Intel teams with Unity to support mobile games

Intel and Unity Technologies come together to make mobile gaming better

Intel has announced that it will be working with Unity Technologies in order to make mobile games better. The game industry has become awash with mobile developers eager to find success in the gaming field with their small, yet entertaining games. Mobile gaming has become quite lucrative for the industry overall and even large development studios and game publishers are entering into the mobile space to take advantage of the growing popularity of mobile games. In order for these games to continue finding success, however, they will need to perform better on mobile platforms.

Tablets will soon rule the mobile gaming field

The tablet market is growing at a rapid pace and these mobile devices happen to be quite popular with those interested in mobile gaming. Intel wants to ensure that games can be played well on any device that includes one of its chipsets. Unity has agreed to extend support of its technologies to Android, Intel-enabled devices. This will allow all games using Unity code to run faster on these devices and make better use of the device’s processor and graphic technology.

Unity game engine will support development of games for Intel-enabled Android devices

Mobile Games - PartnershipThe Unity game engine has become a staple of the game development space. Many developers are beginning to use this engine to create mobile games that are visually appealing and enjoyable. The game engine is able to facilitate development of games for various platforms, and expanding the platforms it supports will allow for a wider range of games to be developed using the engine.

Intel plans to sell at least 40 million tablet processors by the end of this year

Mobile gaming is a big business and Intel has a stake therein. The company is the dominating force in the chip market and is well on its way to solidifying its position in the market through a stronger focus on mobile technology. Intel plans to sell 40 million processors specifically designed for tablet devices by the end of this year.

Wearable technology could help shed light on Parkinson’s Disease

Wearable devices will be used in new study from the Michael J. Fox Foundation and Intel

Wearable technology may hold some promise when it comes to researching Parkinson’s Disease. The Michael J. Fox Foundation and Intel have teamed together to study how wearable devices could be used to detect data on the various symptoms of the disease. The information will be uploaded into a cloud computer network and this information will be available to researchers for free. Some 60,000 people in the U.S. alone are diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease every year and understanding this affliction is beginning to become more important.

Mobile technology is beginning to see more practical uses

Mobile technology plays a significant role in society today, but typically only fills entertainment and social needs. Smartphones allow people to stay in constant contact with one another through the Internet and through a mobile network. Beyond that, mobile technology has only very recently begun to see more attention as a way to gather information about certain medical problems and similar issues.

Study aims to help patients keep track of their symptoms more effectively

Wearable Technology - Health AdvancementsThrough the study, data concerning the slowness of movement, tremors, and sleep quality of those suffering from Parkinson’s Disease will be collected. Wearable devices may also help patients self-report their symptoms and how these symptoms affect their lives more efficiently. A small-scale study was held earlier this year in which patients used wearable devices to offer up information about their symptoms. Those participating in the study noted that wearable devices kept track of their symptoms more effectively.

Wearable technology has seen little practical use in the past few years, but that may be changing quickly

Wearable technology is gaining popularity, but wearable devices are typically seen as novelty rather than practical tools. Most wearable devices have to do with entertainment in some way, while others exist for social media purposes. There are very few of these devices currently available that represent some practical use. Some smartwatches, for instance, exist that help keep track of health information, but wearable devices have seen little practical use beyond this.
