During the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco, Intel spent a lot of time promoting the "Maker" craze in the current world. Intel corporate strategy officer Genevieve Bell believes it's a great time in the maker movement, with Intel interested in supporting new technology ecosystems created by developers.




Intel is a supporter of the Maker Faire and of Make magazine, with growing popularity in the print publication and global maker events.


"It's never been a more exciting and accessible time to invent the future," Bell said during IDF. "It's about changing the world, in small ways and big ways. It's about breaking the rules. Possibilities and disruption. Hard work. Solitary or collaborative. It's not always clear what you are doing. It involves curiosity. It certainly involves failures. It is exhilarating. Sometimes people resist it. To me, that is making."


Intel announced at IDF that it's partnering with United Artists and Turner to create the America's Greatest Maker TV show. Contestants will battle over a $1 million prize, and interested viewers can look forward to it in the first half of 2016.
