Intel has showcased some futuristic technologies at the ongoing CES 2015 event. Intel's future seems to be greatly focused on wearables as it unveiled Curie module, a low-powered hardware product that can be used in a range of wearables including rings, bands and glasses.
Intel's Curie Module is based on an updated version of its Quark Chip, called the Quark SE. The chip comes with features such as 32-bit microcontroller with 384 kB of flash memory and 80 kB SRAM, Bluetooth LE, low-power sensor hub, six-axis combination accelerometer and gyroscope. It runs Viper, an open source software that can capture information via activity recognition and built-in features.
The new module is supposed to help speed up development in the wearable segment. It aims to help developers come up with more compact wearable hardware. Apart from the industry, the module is also important for Intel.
