Intel showcases wearable technology

Chip maker Intel has showcased designs for wearable devices at the CES consumer trade show in Las Vegas. The firm also demonstrated Edison, a dual core PC with built-in wireless capabilities in an SD card form factor.

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said the firm is actively pursuing initiatives aimed at accelerating innovation in wearable devices.  In his keynote speech, he highlighted number of wearable reference devices, including earbuds that provide biometric and fitness capabilities, a headset and a wireless charging bowl.

Krzanich also showcased the Edison. The 22nm Quark technology-based PC supports multiple operating systems, he said. Krzanich added that Edison will enable rapid development by a range of inventors, entrepreneurs and consumer product designers when available in the summer.

“Wearables are not everywhere today because they aren’t yet solving real problems and they aren’t yet integrated with our lifestyles,” said Krzanich. “We’re focused on addressing this engineering innovation challenge. Our goal is, if something computes and connects, it does it best with Intel inside.”
