2018 Olympics: Intel Brings VR, 5G and Drones to PyeongChang


Intel Olympics sponsorship

Intel, a global partner of the International Olympic Committee, is reimagining the Olympic Games so all the amazing moments that happen in PyeongChang become amazing experiences for people all over the world.

In addition to taking entertainment to new heights with drones, showcasing the future of connectivity with a 5G demonstration at PyeongChang Olympic Park, Intel is sponsoring a group of athletes from Japan, China, the U.S. and South Korea.

It’s also transforming how the world watches sports with the first Olympic Winter Games broadcast live in virtual reality, and integrating innovative technology—including collaborating with Microsoft on a mixed reality experience—to ensure people don’t just witness the moment, they experience it.

And, despite a few critics, it’s hosting the first-ever esports competition in PyeongChang in the lead-up to the Games.

Intel technology will show viewers the future of the Olympic Games — where greatness is experienced with Intel True VR, esports reaches a world stage, drones take wonder to new heights and 5G powers a connection that’s faster and stronger than ever.

With Intel technology, fans can do more than just watch The Olympic Games, they can experience them, as Team USA snowboarder Chloe Kim discusses in a video below:
