Me and my Wearable Computer Welcome to my

Wearable Computer Project Site

Last update: 06/24/2000

My Wearable Computer is now ready to use. A bag holds all the components. I have realized a wireless internet connection with my cellular phone and the software Nokia Cellular Data Suite. A virtual keyboard gives me the ability to type (click) in characters without having a real keyboard. I use the Virtual-IO i-glasses with a PC-TV scan converter as a lowcost HMD. It's not the best display, but good for beginning making Wearable Computers. The main problem ist the power supply.
