Intel presents wearable technology vision

•, By Stuart Robarts
 Products touched on included a wearable baby monitor, some smart earbuds and an always-on headset.
Intel also announced the "Make it Wearable" Challenge, a competition that will distribute more than US$1.3 million in awards to participants who have ideas around wearable technology with the potential to shift universal perspective and improve the world in a meaningful way, or concepts that push the limits of what's possible.
Make it Wearable is aimed at encouraging innovation with Intel technology and the company’s release of a new ultra-small programmable computer aimed at hackers and developers is another means by which this can be achieved, as well as providing a platform that participants can build upon for challenge entries.
  Edison is a SD-card sized, Pentium-class PC that's powered by dual-core 22 nm Intel Quark technology with a Linux operating system, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The device will also have its own app store.
