IDF — Wearable computing and the Internet of
Pants Things is a big focus of this year's Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco.
As part of its push to enable developers addressing these emerging market segments, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich today announced the availability of a compact, low-power "motherboard" for wearable devices.
Known as Edison, the board is roughly the size of a postage stamp and hosts a dual-core SoC with memory, connectivity, and communication capabilities built in. A series of expansion boards will enable additional features, including USB support and full Arduino compatiblity.
Krzanich said the target price for Edison is $50, and it should be available at retail outlets right now. We're hoping to collect some fuller specifications for Edison later today.
