In his keynote address on Monday at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Intel CEO Brian Krzanich unveiled several new prototypes of wearable technology including a watch, earbuds and a onesie that allows parents to monitor their baby’s heart rate, body temperature, and sleeping patterns. These devices represent Intel’s desire to move beyond the realm of PC processors — a market which has shrunk dramatically in recent years — towards new products that they hope will represent the next big trend in consumer tech. While the market for wearable technology has yet to emerge as a major rival to smartphones and tablets, Intel is betting that start-ups will want access to the new “Edison” technology that powers the prototypes showcased at CES.
