Intel's New Wearable Computer Allows You To Control A Swarm Of "Spider Bots" With Just A Gesture

Apr 26, 2015 By Archit Tripathi
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich recently unveiled some technology at the Intel Developer Forum in Shenzhen, China that's bringing the age of Terminator and Skynet just a little bit closer to reality. Showing off the company's new button-sized computer, "Curie," Krzanich demonstrates how a Curie-embedded wristwatch is able to use gesture controls to activate and control a swarm of spider robots.

Curie is a major step towards integrating technology into everyday, wearable design. Future iterations could be embedded into rings and pendants, because you know, why have an army of spider-bots to take over the world if you can't look stylish doing it?

All kidding aside, wearable computers and gesture-based technology like this could be a huge asset in many ways. Beyond the obvious cool factor, small gesture-controlled robots would be incredibly useful for search-and-rescue missions.
