    The problem, he said, is that you always had to have something else with you...and they didn't solve all the problems. So Intel asked: How do we fix them. Simple answer: Make everything smart.

    So, how do you do that. How do you make everything smart? You start with simplicity, Krzanich said.

    He talks about the world of runners, so he's surely going to be speaking about the kinds of wearables that runners will use.
    "We thought that there was one simple answer for us: the smart earbuds."

    I actually like the idea of wearables. However, none of them do anything worth me paying good money for just yet.

    So...smart earbuds. They can get their power off the microphone jack on your phone. Simple solution: app, phone, and smart earbud. All your solutions integrated into one device.

    Next: the smart headset.

    Things are getting wacky. There's a baby doll onstage.

    Nicknamed Jarvis. Um...okay.

    Whoa. Should Intel expect litigation from Marvel/Disney?

    Definitely doesn't sound like Jarvis.

    It interacts with phone without picking it up or even touching it. "Hello, Jarvis...Find me a good Indian restaurant around here." And we hear a disembodied voice say which restaurant is best.

    Krzanich says Jarvis was working with a digital assistant Intel has been developing, but will work with any existing digital assistant. Can you say...Siri?

    The next solution: the smart charging bowl.

    Again. The problem with voice-controlled devices/tech is the lack of consistency.

    It apparently solves problems by allowing you to just drop your devices into the bowl and starts charging them.

    That sounds like a nice idea. I have to admit, I'm a little skeptical that this will work as advertised. But I'm willing to be convinced.

    And...here's Intel's smart watch. All the features you want, but Intel added even more.

    Is there no escaping smart watches? Also, Dick Tracy did that like 80 years ago. Just saying.

    It requires no tethering. And it has smart geofencing. Which is, Krzanich says, the capability to monitor the person who's wearing it from afar.

    No privacy concerns here, folks.

    In an emergency, if the person steps outside the geofence, it can automatically send out an alert. "You can imagine all kinds of applications."

    So, I can see some of those applications, but I'm also a bit terrified of the lack of privacy that it implies.

    Intel will team up with a bunch of partners to bring these products to market. Starting with Barney's New York, Opening Ceremony, and the CFDA.

    "We didn't want to stop there." Oh, good. "We want to make everything smart."
