As part of the CES2015, Intel introduced a new button size computer called Curie.

This new tiny chip proves that Intel sees wearables as one of the most exciting thing in consumer electronics and that hardware tinkerers are on the lookout for smaller components to build smarter wearable gadgets.

This new device will include Bluetooth low-energy, motion sensors, and components capable of identifying quickly and more accurately different types of physical activity.

The world’s largest chip maker has also already partnered with some companies in fashion and accessories including Luxottica Group which is the largest eyeglass maker for famous brands such as Ray-Ban and Oakley. Brian Krzanich, Intel’s CEO, declared that Luxottica will use Curie to build real “consumer-friendly” smart glasses.

Available in the second half of the year, this tiny computer will certainly change wearables for the best.
