    because ARM processors use less power

    x86 still has a ways to go if they ever want to enter that market and compete.

    So is this going to be running some sort of Intel homebrew os? Or is it going to run whatever GLASS is running?

    Glass runs Android. Intel and Recon Instruments might use as a base but more or less probably a linux base at least. I think they should, gear like this is coming up more and more and I can see a lot of uses for it.

    It's a really limited version of Android though. I don't know if it's necessarily a certain version (like jellybean). From what I understand, it's basically like a Google Now interface. I'd just be interested to see what Intel does, because if they play their cards right, they could potential make something non-android since it's still early enough to make something innovative.
