Intel hopes to replicate successful PC strategy in wearables

Agam Shah | Sept. 10, 2014
For Intel's CEO, the recipe for success in wearables mirrors a strategy that made it the dominant player in PCs decades ago.

Makers may come up with new ideas that could lead to products that could become the next big hit or benefit society, Krzanich said.

Intel also showed a video of famed scientist Stephen Hawking, who spoke about technology helping people with disabilities. Intel helped in the development of a prototype "connected wheelchair," in which sensors can the track health information of a user and the status of a wheelchair.

"I'm Intel inside myself," Hawking said in the video.

The IDF trade show has a different feel this year, and is geared to attract enthusiasts. It is littered with maker zones where Intel and independent developers are showing wearables, gadgets, robots and drones. It's also part of long-term Intel strategy to change its image as it tries to push its chips into more consumer electronics and wearables.

The chip maker will show off more wearables later on Tuesday.
