CES certainly has given us a lot to talk about but if this isn't one of the coolest things to come out of CES than I don't know what is. The Intel Edison is a dual-core computer that fits an SD card foot print and it packs a big punch for its size. The large core clocks in at 400MHz and the smaller core between 50 and 200MHz. Not only that but it has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as well as 500MB of storage.

The plan is for the Edison to power smart wearable technology with Intel using a portable baby monitor as an example.

Attach it to a regular onesie and sensors that monitor the baby's temperature, breathing, and motion. Then, set the Intel Edison board to trigger actions on other connected devices, like this automatic bottle warmer or this coffee cup.

Each one of these has the Intel Edison board inside, communicating with the others to deliver amazing solutions to age-old problems.

It's a good vision and it will be interesting to see what else the Edison can be applied to. The Edison is due for release around the middle of this year.
