The Intel Smart Clip is a prototype car seat toddler tech device. It has a built-in Bluetooth sensor that alerts your mobile device if your baby unbuckles herself, or if she’s too hot or cold or if the battery is low. The most important feature, however, is that it will send an alert should the Smart Clip still be enabled while falling out of range with the smartphone, preventing a forgotten passenger left behind. The device and accompanying app remarkably went from concept to a full working demo in just a few weeks leading up to the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, thanks in part to 3D printers that were able to make the clip in rapid fashion. This b-roll highlights both the prototype and the Intel team behind it, including team leader Marcie Miller, a new mother and an engineer at Intel.

Intel Science Talent Search 2014 Awards Gala at the National Building Museum, Washington, D.C. (March 11, 2014).
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 21, 2015 – Intel Corporation recognized 40 U.S. high school seniors as finalists in the Intel Science Talent Search, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious pre-college science and math competition and a program of Society for Science & the Public.
The Intel Science Talent Search encourages students to tackle challenging scientific questions and create technologies and solutions that will make people’s lives better. The 40 finalists receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. from March 5-11, where they will compete for more than $1 million in awards provided by the Intel Foundation.
Starting this year, the Intel Science Talent Search will feature a new awards structure that includes triple the top award money and new award categories. In place of the competition’s previous $100,000 top prize, three Medal of Distinction awards of $150,000 each will be presented to students who show exceptional scientific potential in three areas: Basic Research, Global Good, and Innovation. There are also three second-place awards of $75,000, and three third-place awards of $35,000.
“Intel invests in engineering, math and science education to support the next generation of innovators, who will create the products and services to enrich our daily lives,” said Justin Rattner, president of the Intel Foundation. “This year’s finalists – who are engaged in leading-edge scientific research and the creation of new technology to address global challenges such as renewable energy, cybersecurity and infectious diseases – prove that with the right education and resources, young people can indeed change the world.”
Society for Science & the Public, a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to public engagement in scientific research and education, has owned and administered the Science Talent Search since its inception in 1942.
“The 40 finalists of the Intel Science Talent Search are some of the best and brightest young scientists in the nation,” said Maya Ajmera, president and CEO of Society for Science & the Public and publisher of Science News. “As an alumna of the Science Talent Search, I am especially proud to join with Intel in congratulating the finalists on their successes and look forward to learning more about them and their research, both at the finals in March and as their careers progress.”
