Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has just unveiled Edison, a computer which is the size of a memory card

At CES 2014, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich announced Edison, "a full Pentium-class PC" that's the size and shape of the SD card you might otherwise put in your camera.

It's powered by a dual-core Quark SOC, runs Linux, and has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, according to the company

Intel even has a specific app store designed for Edison, and a special version of Wolfram that will come to the tiny computer

To demonstrate the potential for Edison, Intel showed a concept for a "Nursery 2.0."

In the concept, a onesie outfitted with sensors is used to track important details like your baby's temperature, and that information was then displayed on, of all things, a coffee mug.

When the baby was comfortable, blinking lights on the mug show a happy green smiling face, but when something is wrong that face turns red.

A much more useful application, however, involved using Edison to switch on a bottle warmer when your baby starts to stir, that way it's ready come feeding time.
