Eurotech unveils the Wrist Wearable PC
Eurotech has unveiled the design of its WWPC (wrist-wearable PC), a device suitable for a wide range of applications that solidifies the concept of ubiquitous computing.

The WWPC design has integrated all the power and capabilities of a full size PC inside of a versatile device, designed to be worn like a watch. It can be quickly configured to access a remote host system through a wired or wireless interface and features integrated GPS, Bluetooth, Infrared and WLAN, supporting the Linux and Microsoft Windows CE operating systems.

A tilt detection system can be used to detect if the operator has been motionless for a specified amount of time and under these circumstances a location beacon can be transmitted. The WWPC also integrates a system that detects the position of the userís arm and puts the WWPC into stand-by mode when the arm is hanging down beside the body.

The target application areas include emergency rescue, security, defence forces, healthcare, and logistics to name a few.

The WWPC supports different configurable audio/video user interfaces and features a 65K colour TFT display touchscreen display measuring 72x55 mm, and a direct-access keypad. It can be connected to a HID input device through USB or Bluetooth interfaces. It weighs 200g with flexible strap (right and left-handed).

Eurotech plans to release the device with 32 MB of flash ROM memory, and 64 MB SDRAM, with expansion to up to 1GB through a built-in SD.
