8th January 2014
Intel have announced that alongside retailer Barneys New York, international fashion design house Opening Ceremony, and the Council of Fashion Designers of America they will be developing smart wearable technology.

Smart Bracelet
As part of this collaboration Intel and Open Ceremony will be working on designing a smart bracelet which will then be showcased and sold at Barneys New York.

Daniella Vitale, COO of Barneys New York said "One of the greatest opportunities for wearable technology as a concept to be successful is fairly simple - to design a beautiful accessory that our customers would desire. It is exciting to be part of an elite group of brands to bring the reality of smart fashion to life. In collaboration with Intel, we are excited to announce that Barneys New York will be one of the first luxury retailers to merchandise a beautifully designed, smart accessory from Opening Ceremony."

Small Scale?.. Not Really
Although its seems a rather small scale event the total depth of the venture is deceiving. Intel plans to use its vast experience and converge its hardware and software developers with the CDFA which has more than 400 leading fashion designers. Hopefully leading to a plethora of new ideas and ultimately wearable Intel products.

Ayse Ildeniz, vice president, Business Development and Strategy of Intel's New Devices Group said "The collaborations we announced today will merge the expertise of two very distinct disciplines of technology and fashion, essential in realizing the vision of prolific adoption of wearable technology. Intel's aim is to initiate sustainable, long-term cooperation between the technology and fashion worlds beginning with the today's announcements."

Intel are an American multinational Design and Manufacturing company founded in 1968 and are currently the largest semiconductor chip manufacturer. They are most well known for their ranges of Desktop PC Processors and also Mobile and Server Processors although they also produce Solid State Drives and Motherboards for the retail sector.
