Look closely. That's not an SD card. Rather, it's the Intel Edison - a full x86 PC with Pentium-class specs.

Unveiled at CES 2014, the Edison runs on Linux and is powered by Intel’s dual-core Quark system-on-chip processor. One core spins at 400MHz, while the other varies between 50MHz and 200MHz depending on the task's demands. Everything but the kitchen sink fits snugly into this SD card form factor, including 512MB RAM, flash storage, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE connectivity.

This means smaller and smarter consumer tech is headed your way: it's all part of Intel CEO Bryan Krzanich's plan to make every object smart - particularly those we can wear.
