Will.i.am Joins Intel as Director, starts Job right after Super Bowl Halftime Show

Intel announced that Black Eyed Peas member will.i.am will join Intel as Director of Creative Innovation. The Black Eyed Peas will be in the spotlight in less than two weeks when they perform the Super Bowl XLV halftime show . As a geek you can call out now during the game: "Hey look! There is an Intel employee on stage!"

This deal between will.i.am and Intel reminds me immediately on Lady Gaga and Polaroid. Lady Gaga has become Creative Director at Polaroid at CES 2010. She still holds that title and unveiled some "interesting" gadgets at the CES 2011. So what is will.i.am doing at Intel?

will.i.am will engage in a multi-year, hands-on creative and technology collaboration with Intel Corporation. “Nearly everything I do involves processors and computers, and when I see an Intel chip I think of all the creative minds involved that help to amplify my own creativity,” said will.i.am. “Teaming up with the scientists, researchers and computer programmers at Intel to collaborate and co-develop new ways to communicate, create, inform and entertain is going to be amazing.”

The relationship ties in with Intel’s “compute continuum” vision, in which more and more devices will compute and connect to the Internet, and the company’s “visual life” initiative that explores how visual experiences such as photos, videos and movies are redefining the relationship consumers have with laptops, smart phones, tablets and other devices.
In his unique role, will.i.am will collaborate with Intel on many creative and technology endeavors across the “compute continuum” that may include such devices as laptops, smart phones and tablets. Complementing his visionary role as the front man for The Black Eyed Peas, will.i.am is also already working on music expressly for Intel.

Let's see how long we have to wait until we see will.i.am inside gadgets.

Below you can watch the official event for the will.i.am Intel announcement.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
