Computer chip giant unveiled a major new push Monday on wearables and connecting everyday devices.

Intel Summary - CES 2014

Chief executive Brian Krzanich said Intel would produce on its own or with partners a range of products from a health monitor integrated into baby clothes to heart monitor in earbuds.

Intel will be producing a smartwatch with “geofencing” which allows families to get alerts if children or elderly parents leave a specific geographic area.

Krzanich said Intel is taking a new approach to wearable computing, seeking to address specific problems with the simplest technology.

He showed a turtle-shaped sensor on baby clothing which can send information to a smart coffee cup about an infant’s breathing, temperature and position.

He said the earbuds would enable runners and athletes who already listen to music while exercising to get detailed health information in real time.

“We want to make everything smart. That’s what Intel does,” he said.

He said Intel will be partnering with the luxury retailer Barneys New York, the Council of Fashion Designers of America and design house Opening Ceremony to explore and market smart wearable technology.

And Intel will offer $1.3 million in prizes for other developers who come up with new ideas for wearable computing, including a first prize of $500 million.

“This will allow creation and innovation to come to life” in wearables, he said.

To address questions about security, Intel will offer its McAfee mobile software free of charge.

“We believe this will allow this ecosystem to flourish.”

As we said in our last post, Intel introduces Dual OS.

“There are times you want Windows, there are times you want Android,” he said. “You don’t have to make a choice, you can have both.” thats what he said.

Intel also unveiled a new 3D camera called RealSense which can be integrated into tablets.

This can for example allow a user to design a toy or other object and then send it to a 3D printer. Intel produced chocolate bars using the technology which were handed out to the attendees at CES.

Mooly Eden, senior vice president for perceptual computing, said

“We’ll make human-computer interaction natural, intuitive, immersive. We’ll make it more human,” and “We finally removed the fiction from science fiction and made it real.”
