Intel has always been an interesting company to watch, but lately, we've been looking at how it's adjusting focus to better handle the current competitive landscape. On the CPU side, the fact that AMD is more competitive than ever has been well-documented, both on the desktop side and in the enterprise. Intel has already reduced its focus in some key places, such as wearables. In one example of readjusted focus, the company is now targeting augmented reality as the next big thing it can play a part in. But we're not through with the deaths yet, as today we learn of yet another in the Intel product family: Arduino 101. This DIY tinker board was first revealed a couple of years ago, and with a...

It might not be cute as a button, but Intel’s button-sized Curie Compute Module (just a fancy name for a new SoC) promises to greatly advance the low-power wearables market. The chip giant first introduced Curie at CES earlier this year, but Intel today announced that the first product that will use Curie is the Arduino 101 microcontroller board. If you recall, an inventive engineer used an Arduino Pro Mini board to carry out an epic Mjolnir on unsuspecting passersby. Unfortunately, Arduino 101 isn’t small enough to allow for a true wearable (it measures 7cm x 5.5cm) but it does open up a number of possibilities for those looking to tinker with electronics — especially in the education sector,...
