With the CES coming up next week, we can expect plenty of new devices and technology to be shown off. A report now claims that chip manufacturer Intel will make an appearance during the event and will showcase wearable devices, the first of its kind from the company. The CEO of Intel Brian Krzanich gave away this information himself, so we don’t need any further confirmation. The company’s wearable devices won’t make its way to the markets until April apparently, but we can expect the company to show off a few prototypes.
Maybe it will be something like a smartwatch since Qualcomm has already stepped into that market with the Toq smartwatch recently. Further, Intel is believed to unveil a slightly advanced version of the Quark microchip to be used on its wearable devices. It is too premature to predict what Intel will have on offer, but we can’t rule out something like a Google Glass at this point. The company has allegedly hired engineers who previously worked on the Oakley Airwave Goggles and the Nike FuelBand fitness accessory, so we can expect something special from Intel next week.
