Theory of Everything, a biopic on the life of the extraordinary scientist Stephen Hawking features Eddie Redmayne playing the genius himself. The actor went down to Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) labs to get a good look at the system tailor made for Hawking to communicate. Stephen Hawking is known for his extraordinary feats in the field of Science; along with that the world knows Hawking because of the rare motor neuron disease he has which has rendered him almost paralyzed.

Intel Corporation ((NASDAQ:INTC) has created a new system called Assistive Context Aware Toolkit, specially designed for the likes of people afflicted with the motor neuron disease. The goal is obvious: To make communication easy for these people. The actor stated that the legendary scientist was a mythical figure to him during his time in College. But meeting him in person was a different experience. The actor observed the intricacies of the scientist’s life, how he spends his time etc.

The new Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) device is based upon the technology of a simple engine; a sensor is laced upon Hawking’s cheek and is detected by an infrared device which is actually a switch attached to his spectacles.
