Intel explores the future of wearables

Intel isn't really known for actual devices — but they are known for what's inside them. PCs, phones, you name it. Their chips are in devices we use every day, even if we don't realize it. One thing that we haven't seen much of from them however is wearable devices (they did snatch up Basis back in March though). Intel has showcased the future of wearable devices in a series of videos for The Creators Project as part of their partnership with VICE. The Creators Project celebrates art and tech by spotlighting artists who "are using technology in innovative ways to push the boundaries of creative expression."

Being such a big player, Intel obviously has an interest in the future of technology, part of which is wearable devices. Wearables are still so new, but we've seen things come far already. With smartwatches, wearable clothing and accessories like Google Glass only at the beginning, who know what the future will bring.

The videos below are part of the Make It Wearable series and explore the futuristic world of wearables in support of Intel's own Make It Wearable challenge. The five-part series covers everything from communication to health to becoming superhuman. Be sure to check them all out — they're intriguing, informative and really give a great look at what we could see in the coming years for wearable devices.

Episode 1: Human Communication


Episode 2: Human Health


Episode 3: Human Expression


Episode 4: Becoming Superhuman


Episode 5: Daily Life

These videos aren't new, we just happened to stumble across them today. They fit in perfectly with the connected world though and really get us excited for the future of connected technology. Drop a comment and let us know what you think!

Intel explores the future of wearables


Good to have visions.
However, those showcased visions are still far away.

We're still lacking a couple of disruptive technology advances that are sorely needed to help to make things happen.

Batteries, displays, chips, radios are still way to clumsy for being really useful for wearables.

We need serious lumps of R&D money being thrown at basic technologies to make things happen.
Once we see some breakthroughs there we'll see an tsunami of new, useful and practical solutions.

Still ways to go ...
