Intel Corp. will supply the electronic brains for a new version of
Google Inc.’s Glass device expected next year, people familiar
with the matter said, part of a push by the semiconductor giant
into wearable technology. An Intel chip will replace a processor
from Texas Instruments Inc. included in the first version of
Glass, the people said.
Intel plans to promote Glass to companies such as hospital
networks and manufacturers, while developing new workplace uses
for the device, according to one of the people.
Just the thing Google Glass needs to jump-start sales: blue “Intel Inside” decals on the frames.
