Test Driving A Wearable Computer
from the life-imitates-art dept
A columnist from the San Jose Mercury News had the chance to test out Xybernaut’s latest wearable computer – which is the first they’ll be offering to consumers. While cheaper than their other models (sold only to businesses and the military), it doesn’t sound all that impressive. Apparently, it’s tough to get the head mounted display to work properly, and the device is severely underpowered. With the sudden interest in tiny computers that we spoke about earlier, hopefully, it will soon be possible to create more fully powered wearables. I still think it’s amusing, though, how closely life is starting to imitate the book Snow Crash.
