Forget the Apple Watch. Forget the Pebble Time. What you really need is a wristband that gives you the power to control an army of scary-looking drones. At IDF in Shenzhen, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich put on a simple Curie-powered wristband with motion detection, which then let him commandeer four robot spiders. With some simple gestures, Krzanich was able to make them stand up, change the LED colors on the drones, make them do "fist" pumps and eventually go back to idling. Sounds cute, right? Maybe not so much when you actually see this in action -- we have a video right after the break.
