At yesterday’s CES conference, Intel set the spotlight on wearables. Demonstrating their conceptual creations, the company wants to popularize the use of this type of technological gadgets, making them really useful and more independent of other gadgets.
The engine of all, it seems, is Edison, a computer the size of an SD that we talked about here in Tecnoblog. It has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and equivalent processing to the Pentium line and can be the turning point for wearables.
Joining the choir of smartwatches, Intel introduced its reference design of this accessory.The cool thing is that he does not need a smartphone to make the connection (and have some use), such as Samsung’s Galaxy Gear, Sony’s SmartWatch, Qualcomm’s Toq and Pebble. Geo-fencing has also been mentioned, which allows the creation of limited regions and can have several uses. Intel has partnered with fashion companies to take care of the design of this gadget.
She also introduced two not-so-conventional headphones. One, called Jarvis, does not have that name by chance; It works as a personal wireless assistant paired with the smartphone, such as Google Now or Siri. The company is also developing its own – probably optimized for headphones.
For now, Jarvis’s strengths are the way he “interacts” with the user, which is much more natural than we are accustomed to: the answer is quick, making the conversation flow; A response can be interrupted with a specific ring tone or command; And he can even figure out the best time to speak a notification, without disturbing the user.
This fits in the ear and voila!
The other headphones, on the other hand, are more attractive to athletes: they are in-ear-shaped and filled with biometric readers, they work like watches that get information about exercise. The headphones are capable of monitoring heart rate, marking the trajectory traversed by the person and recording the calories burned through the applications installed on the user’s smartphone. They also play music, even according to the exercise being done, and even have you step up the pace if you are not following up.The power source is the P2 port itself, so it is not necessary to recharge the batteries.Already with Jarvis, yes: the duration is estimated in one day and is recharged in a kind of basin.
Looks like … headphones.
All wearables shown by Intel are still in the design reference status, so there is no prospect of being released commercially. Still, they serve to give an idea of how this technological niche is evolving rapidly and should expand further in the very near future.
