During his CES 2015 keynote, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich introduced the audience to Curie, dubbed the smallest wearable processor. Welcome to the wild world of wearable tech.
The processor, the size of a button, is designed to turn what you wear into smart technology. The module harnesses Bluetooth LE and includes a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope to track movements and recognize gestures. Gizmodo writes “it can run either off a rechargeable battery or a more traditional coin-like watch battery, though Intel doesn’t say for exactly how long.”
“This changes the game on wearables,” he said. Curie should debut at some point in the second half of 2015.
Krzanich showed off the chip by tracking his steps and heart rate during the keynote, and the results were displayed on a smartphone.
“Wearables are a natural extension of computing,” Krzanich said. “Wearables are ultra personal.”
