For years, people have been “recharging” with a bowl after a long, hard day. Soon, their electronics devices, will be able to do the same, thanks to Intel’s Humboldt County product design studio.
If it ships at the end of year, as expected, Intel’s charging bowl will be the first product from Intel’s Northern California outpost to make it to market since it was opened in 1972, just a few short years after Intel’s own founding in 1968.
When we asked about the long gestation period, Randy Redwood, a senior vice-pesident of consumer product development, replied that they’d pursued a number of important initiatives in the past forty years. “Some of them were fuckin’ killer, man,” then, after a long pause, Mr. Redwood continued, “…but they didn’t work out…such a bummer… WHAT, oh yeah, carmel corn. Excuse me, I gotta get to the cafeteria before they run out of carmel corn.”
