Previous: Definition of `WearComp'
Such a computational framework allows one to subsume all of
the personal electronics devices that one might normally carry,
- cellular phone;
- wrist watch;
- heart monitor;
- video camera
into a single device.
Obviously, since it is a fully featured computer, it is
possible to respond to email, plan events on a calendar, type a
report, or the like, while walking, standing in line at the bank,
or the like. It this way WearComp anticipated the later arrival
of the so-called ``laptop computer'', but has advantages over the
laptop computer in the sense that it can be used while walking
around doing other things.
However, the real power of WearComp is in its ability to serve as
a basis for Personal Imaging and Humanistic Intelligence.
