Leader of Intel’s IoT and wearable design, Noel Murphy, and his team are at the forefront of developing some of the IoT technologies that help makers and the tech industry connect to the world at large.

On stage at Inspirefest 2016, Murphy took a humble approach to showcasing some internet of things (IoT) technologies from the small to the grand.

“I’m here to reach out to some more collaborators, who will help us define what this technology looks like in a wearable world because, frankly, no one has a clue,” Murphy said.

Closing his showcase, Murphy called out his two assistants – who also happen to be his daughters Aisling and Orla– to demonstrate a real DIY approach to IoT and what can be done with a little simple programming.

As they demonstrated, both assistants were able to create sounds through movement using the chips’ embedded sensors and gyroscopes.

“That’s taking technology, embedding it in shoes, playing a game with it and creating live music,” Murphy concluded.

“I need your help to allow us take this technology and have some fun with it.”
