In­tel, ‘Sur­vivor’ pro­duc­ers plan show on wear­ables and smart tech­nol­ogy

The China Post - - WORLD BUSINESS -

U.S. tech­nol­ogy firm In­tel, best known for its semi­con­duc­tor chips, is jump­ing into re­al­ity TV with a com­pe­ti­tion for mak­ers of wear­ables and smart con­nected con­sumer de­vices.

For “Amer­ica’s Great­est Mak­ers,” due to pre­miere in early 2016 across the Turner Broad­cast­ing en­ter­tain­ment plat­form, In­tel teamed up with “Sur­vivor” pro­ducer Mark Bur­nett.

Win­ners will take home a US$1 mil­lion prize.

The pro­gram, an­nounced Tues­day at the 2015 In­tel Devel­oper Fo­rum in San Fran­cisco, will be inspired by tele­vi­sion com­pe­ti­tion shows such as “Amer­i­can Idol.”

Com­peti­tors will be chal­lenged to in­vent wear­ables and smart con­nected con­sumer de­vices pow­ered by In­tel’s Curie tech­nol­ogy.
