Quite a few of Sunnyvale's "Semiconductor Indians" are on their board.

Interesting company.

The issue is not cost, power. Processors in wearable devices need to be extremely low power and there MCUs fail

Specs for CPU?

Now that the wearable devices are going to be the next in-thing for the developers, could there be an IEEE specification on the requirements of a wearable CPU?

This could lead to be many sources and easier for the designers to select one for their application.

If you really want low cost, aren't there hundreds of catalog integrated MCUs out there?

Taking the example of the Google Glass rated battery capacity of 570mAh, 30 days or 720h of standby time would mean a total device leakage including SoC, PMIC, display, wireless and other links of less than 800uA which sounds like a very challenging goal and in order to hit it I'd expect the wearable would be doing nothing i.e. in standby most of the time.
