Intel shows off its next wearable...the shirt

Source: Recode

Intel's CEO Brian Krzanich introduced the company's latest wearable at the tech-heavy Code Conference: a shirt.

The shirt contains chips in it to measure heart rate and EKG and other vitals, said Krzanich. It can also capture a person's emotion, and can be used to visualize the health of a patient.

It's battery powered, but is safe to wear in the rain, Krzanich said. (But don't try it out in the shower, he added.)

The shirt, which has no name, is made by AIQ, and will be selling this summer.

During an interview with Re/code co-founders Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, Krzanich also admited, again, that the company missed the mobile revolution.

Intel will not miss wearables, though. "The next phases of computing is more connected, more mobile. That's where Intel is investing," he said.
