Intel Edison: an SD card-sized PCBarence writes "Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has revealed the company's vision for wearable computing — and at its core is an SD card-sized PC called Edison.
Edison is based on Quark technology, the tiny, low-power system-on-a-chip that was designed for wearable computers, such as smart watches, and the Internet of Things. "It's a full Pentium-class PC in the form factor of an SD card," Krzanich said. It not only supports multiple OSes and has built-in support for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, but it also has its own app store — and has Wolfram Alpha's Mathematica baked in by default.
Edison will be integrated into devices such as wireless headsets, smart watches — which won't need to be tethered to another device — and the "smart turtle", a monitoring device can be clipped to a baby's clothing to keep watch of its movement, pulse or breathing."
