IBM zal nog voor het eind van volgend jaar een wearable PC introduceren, zo bericht de Montreal Gazette:
No one is laughing today as IBM prepares to market a portable PC so small that it clips on to your belt and weighs as little as four sticks of butter.
Customers will be wearing it, possibly as soon as the end of next year, when the price could be less than $2,500.
[...] The latest device comes with an eraser-sized mouse that works like a miniature joystick and a headset that holds speakers and a monitor. The monitor, about half the size of a pen cap, sits about an inch from the eye, giving the user the illusion of reading a 14-inch screen at normal viewing distances. The PC can also hook into a desktop monitor. Users can attach a keyboard but can also direct the PC through speech-recognition software that is included.
Hmm handig, kan ik nieuws updaten terwijl ik m'n dagelijkse wandeling heen en terug naar school maak (ja, m'n band is al een half jaar lek en die weiger ik resoluut te (laten) plakken ).
