In any way Intel is planning “Edison” to be a device for the average user. This is a piece of hardware intended for developers to get started in the next generation of wearable, cloud-powered, devices. Just as an example, at CES 2014, Intel is showing what’s possible with “Edison” in “Nursery 2.0”, that embeds the new chip in a toy frog that collects a child’s vitals and reports them back to a parent via an LED coffee cup, and there is also a milk warmer that automatically starts warming the milk when it hears the baby is crying.

To make things a little more interesting, Intel is also announcing the “Make it Wearable” contest, that will offer up to $1.3 million in prizes for developers who creates wearable gadgets. Information on the competition is yet to be announced, but the company said that the first prize will get $500,000.
