With all of the major tech giants such as Apple, Samsung, Sony and Google all working on wearable computers in one form or another, Intel has decided that it would like to join the party. During a recent interview with Reuters, Intel's CEO Brian Krzanich confirmed that the silicon giant is actively developing a wearable computer.

Krzanich went on to say that the company is not only developing a wearable computer, but designing specific chipsets for wearable devices. He was careful not to hint at what type of wearable device we might see from Intel, but he did say that we can expect to see wearable technology featuring Intel hardware by the end of this year or early next year. It is still unclear if those chips will be repurposed Atoms or if the company has developed a whole new SoC line just for wearable computing.
