Intel continues to partner with other companies to help create new wearable technology devices. The latest such team up is a multi-year deal with Luxottica to help them launch "premium, luxury and sports eyewear with smart technology."

Intel says:

This strategic alliance will push the boundaries of research and development to anticipate what smart technology for eyewear will look like in the future. The ultimate goal is to help pioneer that change and deliver smart, fashion-forward products that are meaningful and desirable to consumers. The first product from Intel and Luxottica is expected to launch in 2015.

No other information about these products have been revealed yet. Intel's first big wearable tech product, the MICA smartwatch, is scheduled to go on sale later in December in a partnership with fashion accessory company Opening Ceremony.

Intel has also announced a collaboration with watch maker Fossil but so far no details about their first product have been announced. There are rumors that Intel will supply the processor for the next version of Google Glass but those reports have yet to be confirmed.
