Intel's OASIS will keep an eye on your kitchen food.
While Intel may be directing most of its resources in developing new computer chips, there's also a considerable amount of innovation going on that doesn't involve your next CPU.
One of the very cool things going on at Intel's Seattle labs is OASIS, or Object Aware Situated Interactive System.
While today's most high-tech toys may be the touch-sensitive iPad or iPod touch, Intel's OASIS brings it out to an entire "real world" playing surface. Check out the video below to see how Intel, through the use of camera sensors and projectors, bring Lego to life.
Of course, it's not all just for play. Some of the technology has some real world, practical applications, such as inside the kitchen.
