The latest firm to pledge its interest in wearable computing is Intel. X-bit Labs reports the company's new CEO Brian Krzanich promised at least one Intel-based wearable computing device should emerge by the end of the year:
“I think you will start to see stuff with our silicon toward the end of the year and the beginning of next year. We are trying to get our silicon into some of them, create some ourselves, understand the usage and create an ecosystem,” said Brian Krzanich, chief executive officer of Intel Corp., in an interview with Reuters news-agency.
Previously, Justin Rattner, former chief technology officer of Intel, confirmed that the company was developing experimental smart wrist watch devices. In fact, a rumour that surfaced earlier this year stated that Intel was working on iWatch with Apple, which may be a sign that the chip giant does have something in its pockets for the wearable computing gadgets.
