The Computer On Your Wrist?
from the the-wrist-top dept
In the past, I've thought that the wrist watch was the perfect form factor for a personal computer -- since it's always on you, easily accessible, and doesn't seem to get in the way of much. Of course, the obvious problem is that the form factor isn't particularly conducive to lots of data input or output. In fact, most efforts to increase the smarts on your watch have ended pretty badly. While, personally, I'm a big fan of my Xonix mp3 playing watch, it seems that most people are pretty happy to keep their watches on the dumb side. Still, that doesn't stop companies from trying. While Apple is getting all the publicity today for their mini Mac, a Korean group is working on a fully functional wrist watch computer. Very few details are given -- so, given the lack of any real success elsewhere, we're going to have to assume that this one is heading down the same path.
