Qualcomm Made An Awesome Photobooth To Show Off The Power Of Its CPUsBy: Zach Walton - October 21, 2013
Qualcomm is in the CPU business, and is quite proud of its Snapdragon SoCs that power pretty much every Android smartphone on the planet. Now it could show off the power of its CPUs by making an outdated reference to a rhythm game, or it could do something much cooler.
Qualcomm recently set up a 540 degree photobooth comprised of 130 HTC One smartphones in Venice Beach. In other words, the company built one of the coolest photobooths you will ever see.
In the video below, you’ll see people showing off their various talents while being surrounded by 130 HTC One smartphones. Each phone takes one picture and then Qualcomm compiles these pictures into a stop-motion video of a man breathing fire or a guy breakdancing. There’s even a really impressive frisbee trick thrown in for good measure.
To be honest, I don’t really see how this shows off the power of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoCs. You could do this with pretty much any other phone, regardless of its CPU. The real winner here is the HTC One as HTC gets to show off the camera in its flagship device.
Still, it’s a really cool idea, and Qualcomm is offering to bring it to your town. You only need to visit the Snapdragon Booth site and vote to have Qualcomm visit your town next. The winner right now with 23 percent of the votes is Los Angeles, while Chicago and Miami are tied for second place at 15 percent.[Image: SnapdragonProcessors/YouTube]
