Ajay Bhatt: What He is Working on Now!
It has been a while since we last heard the name Ajay Bhatt, you know the guy who co-created the USB device and was portrayed by an actor in Intel’s famous Rock Star commercials. But recently Mint had a chance to catch up with him and ask him what he has been up to since the success of the USB and his portrayal on the Intel commercials: he didn’t disappoint!
Since the success of the commercial and the interview Conan O’Brian did on the Tonight Show, Ajay Bhatt has gained more public notoriety and fame. He says in his interview with Mint that his biggest accomplishment out of all of this success has been with his daughter, who used to think he was geeky and nerdy, now thinks her father is cool!
But of course she’s not the only one who thinks her father is cool. Her father has helped pioneer entire industries and is not only responsible for the USB, but the PCI-Express, and Accelerated Graphic Port that made 3D graphics possible. All of this success has not stopped him from pursuing his passions however, and is currently working on more technological breakthroughs that could alter our lives forever.
In the interview, Ajay talks about how he’s investigating ways to make more pieces of technology talk to one another. For example, your cell phone talking to your laptop or your camera transferring pictures over a WI-FI. His ultimate goal is to make it so you can make all your devices talk to one another for seamless home enjoyment. Imagine transferring an image from your camera, to your cell phone, to your laptop, then to your TV; all with the flick of your wrist!
He also mentioned that he is looking into ways at prolonging battery efficiency. One area they are currently looking into is a way for the computer to sense exactly how much power to use at a given time. So when a large load is required, more power will be delivered, but when the computer is idle or requires less power, the computer will draw less power. This will not only be more efficient, but possibly extend battery life.
Ajay even made a small comment about USB 3.0! It wasn’t much, reassuring everyone that USB 3.0 is 10 times faster than 2.0 and consumes less energy. This of course means you can transfer large amounts of files in a matter of seconds, not minutes.
It would seem that Mr. Bhatt has been a busy man and shows no signs of slowing down. If you would like to read the entire article as well as what else Ajay Bhatt is up to, click the link below:
