Wearable push?
This is an interesting move, as Intel has shown a lot of interest in wearable developments with technology like its Edison and Curie systems. I wonder if either of those will end up in a new generation of smartglasses? Perhaps too, Intel will position itself to compete with Microsoft's Hololens.

good looking gear
If Intel combines the look of luxury glasses with the features of smart wear we might finally have a pair of smart glasses you would want to wear and don't feel weird in instead of wired. For sports I can see a good looking pair of smart sunglasses making it's way to help you pace a run, check your stats, and help you meet your fitness goals, all without looking at your phone or smart watch.
