Wrist PCs: not just for the military


Parvuszypad Actually, unless your name is Dick Tracy, these Wrist PCs probably are for the military. The Zypad WL 1000 runs either Windows CE 5 or embedded Linux on a 400 MHz MIPS processor. If you’re wearing the WL 1000 and either remain motionless or fall down, the unit can transmit your location as well. For additional power savings the device can automatically drop into a Standby mode if it registers your arm hanging down at your side. After all, you don’t really need to see the screen when your wrist is far from your eyes, right? No word on pricing and availability is in the near future. Is it me or does this look like an oversized blood pressure monitor?
