Intel India has recently declared its plan to set up Intel India Maker Lab in its Bengaluru campus, which will be operational soon. The Intel India Maker Lab have two goals. First, to accelerate hardware design innovation by increasing product revolution. Second, to improve maker capability for innovators and startups in India.
Kumud Srinivasan, President, Intel India, said “Intel India is committed to the Government’s Digital India vision. Intel’s philosophy has always been to inspire, imagine and realize innovations that enhance lives. With the Intel India Maker Lab, we are offering a strong platform to India’s vibrant start-up ecosystem, and encouraging young innovators to turn their ideas into exciting and relevant products for India.”
This Lab will provide resources such as infrastructure, development kits, reference boards, and hardware/software tools. Using these resources, the innovators and sartups can test their ideas and develop proof of concepts. Later, they can finally shape those resources into products and solutions.
In tandem with the ‘Make in India’ initiative, Intel India will help the innovators to connect with the local technology ecosystem like Electronic Manufacturing Service providers, Original Design Manufacturers, Independent Software Vendors and System Integrators.
It seems like Intel India is working really hard to bring new tech to life from Indian innovators. It does look like a good step to boost quality innovations and help Make In India campaign.
