Energy Efficiency

Based on x86 with WiFi and BLE connectivity built in, how does the energy footprint look? The fundemental of wearable is low energy consumption that the ideal runtime of a one charge shall be at least 1 month imo. Nonetheless, given x86 core, the adoption will be high since Edision supports 2 OS and porting of Linux shall be relatively simple.

The strategy is great and if the price point of buying a development board is competitive, Edision might actually gain momentum.

I'd love to hear from anyone with hands on experience working with this new Quark module in wearables...or the Quark on an Arduino launched late last year...or any Quark.

Gee, I don't know if I want to wear a device named after the company who brought us the first electric chair.

Missing MEMS and other sensors

One most important part of wearable SoC is MEMS and many other sensors. Has Intel forgot to integrate them in their device?

Intel should work with other SoC integrator to make this system work.

Power consumption and longervity - is it possible?

Keeping all the possible devices powered and functional - is there a limitation? The early WiFi days had limitations on distance and the number of WiFi connections that were viable. 

Can this be the new "pager"? (Remember those little buggers?)

Form factor is important

I like several things about this, not the least of which is the form factor. Wearable devices will need to adapt from the traditional hard box into something that integrates better into whatever they will be put in. I don't know if this one will do it, but kudos to Intel for experimenting. I would also like to see a power scavenging capability. People move, which should generate power. Running clothes are almost a no-brainer, as are clothes for going out on the town dancing.

I was thinking the same thing. Wearables fundamentally need sensors, not just intelligence, connectivity & low energy consumption. But I look forward to seeing what kinds of new products are developed on this new platform.

I agree energy efficiency is teh key...what is the power dissipation of Edison? Kris

To me, Intel is making a platform to catch the wave of IoT. It is difficult to decide which sensor to put into the system at this point. Yet, I agree with you and I hope Intel has a partnership plan to start integrating Edision with sensors produced by different companies. On the other hands, Intel might actually wish vendors start developing solution based on the platform, hoping for later integration.

Beyond Wintel

It seems as though Intel is moving to offer Android and Windows equally for mobile systems, which means it has finally accepted that smartphones and tablets---which it was late to really recognize as equals--are of increasing importance as PCs decline steadily in sales. The Wintel era may be drawing to a close.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
