CES 2014 - Intel's freshly appointed CEO, Brian Krzanich, took the stage at the chip maker's keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014 in Las Vegas to unveil a slew of new smart devices.

One of which is dubbed Jarvis, which reminds me of Tony Stark's AI in Iron Man - also named Jarvis, which is a Siri-like, voice-controlled virtual assistant. Instead of cramming the virtual assistant into a smartphone or tablet, it has done so within an earpiece. Jarvis can be paired to a smartphone app, where it can then remotely interact with your device.

 

From Jarvis, you can get directions, look up restaurants or stores, or many of the other commands and applications that Google Now is capable of - which is a lot. Intel's Jarvis is only in the reference design stage right now, so we should expect some vast changes between now and when we can install them into our own ears.
