Computex 2015 - Intel is best known for its CPUs that power servers and computers, but don't expect the company to just stop there.

In addition, Intel is looking to embrace wearables, creating new hardware platforms that can power the next generation of wearable devices.

"The power of Moore's Law has enabled incredible computing innovation over the past 50 years and because of it, nearly everything in the future will have the ability to compute and connect," said Kirk Skaugen, SVP and GM of the Client Computing Group at Intel. "Our 30-year history of collaboration with Taiwan has delivered historic innovation to the world, from personal computing to the cloud and data centers."

This isn't a new trend for Intel - after learning about not reacting fast to the shift towards smartphones and tablets - as the company spoke about IoT during CES in January.

"The next 30 years will see even greater innovation as we deliver new computing experiences and bring intelligence and connectivity to the Internet of Things together."
