Intel's tiny Curie wearable computer could go into jacket buttons

Intel wants to win the battle for your body with the smallest ever wearable computer called Curie, which is so tiny, it was barely visible to the audience during an on-stage demonstration.

In a demonstration called "The Game of Drones," Intel showed a drone going through an obstacle course.

Intel also wants to make PC usage free of wires. Tablet and PC users will be able to recharge, transfer data, send print requests, or even connect to monitors and printers without cables.

"You no longer will be chained to your computer by wires," Krzanich said.

A demonstration showed a tablet being charged wirelessly after it was put on the table. Intel is partnering with Marriott to bring wireless computing to hotels later this year. Other Intel partners for wireless computing include Hilton, Dupont, Emirates and San Francisco airport.

At the keynote, HP also announced that it would use Intel's Core i7 chip in its first 3D printers called Multi Jet Fusion. The 3D printer will require a lot of processing power because of a complicated multi-step process to create 3D objects.
