Intel has decided to ride the wearable computing wave. The company showed off its forthcoming Edison processor, a 22nm dual-core Quark system-on-a-chip that features built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. The chip is about the size of an SD card and is designed to fit into small, wearable items and smart devices. Edison supports Linux and also sports an ultra-low power architecture. The processor will begin shipping mid-year, but no word yet on what Edison will cost.
