CES 2015: Intel demonstrates tiny wearable computer called ‘Curie’
During a keynote address at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich demonstrated one of the company's latest innovations --- the smallest ever wearable computer called 'Curie.'
Asserting that the new 'Curie' wearable computer "can deliver wearables in a range of form factors," Krzanich said that the button-sized computer can go into small coin battery devices - which generally run for days or months - as well as rings, pendants, bags and even the "buttons on our jackets."
Demonstrating the Curie chip on stage at the CES event, Krzanich showed how the tiny chip - which could barely be seen by the audience - tracked his steps and heart rate during the keynote, with the results reflected on a smartphone.
Krzanich also highlighted the fact that the new 'Curie' computer - which was demonstrated fresh out of Intel's labs - is based on the extremely low-power Quark processor; and boasts Bluetooth wireless communication capabilities. The computer features a sensor hub that enables wireless devices to effectively track users' steps and other activities.
The demonstration of the miniscule 'Curie' chip at the CES event underscores Intel's apparent efforts to put its circuitry in the fast-emerging 'wearable devices' category. Towards that end, Krzanich said: "Wearables are a natural extension of computing."
