Worn as Clothing (wearables)
Wearable computing is much in the news. For example, earlier this month Google finally revealed a secret project called Project Glass that can augment a person’s vision through a computer like pair of glasses. The glasses can stream information to the lenses and allow the wearer to send and receive messages through voice commands. There is also a built-in camera to record video and take pictures.
Another recent news example is Pebble which is an e-ink smartwatch that connects to iPhone and Android devices. The watch sports a 144 x 168 black-and-white e-ink display and also includes a vibrating motor, four buttons, a 3-axis accelerometer, and Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR, which facilitates wireless connection to an Android or iOS device. Perhaps best: Pebble looks pretty darn slick.
