2. One of the simpler definitions of Wearable Computing is: Wearable computing facilitates a new form of human-- computer interaction comprising a small body--worn computer (e.g. user--programmable device) that is always on and always ready and accessible. In this regard, the new computational framework differs from that of hand held devices, laptop computers and personal digital assistants (PDAs). The ``always ready capability leads to a new form of synergy between human and computer, characterized by long-term adaptation through constancy of user--interface.15/03/2012 By Stewart Locke 2 3.

The project was in a prototype combat testing stage in 2009, with funding cut to only cover maintenance. If it proved to be useful to infantry combat it was likely to return to full funding Unfortunately it didnt Catch on.15/03/2012By Stewart Locke 11 12. 15/03/2012 By Stewart Locke 12 13. The GD300 includes a sunlight readable display and functional control buttons typically found on any Android-based device. The 3.5-inch touch-screen display lets war fighters move information around, zoom in or out or place digital markers on tactical maps with the touch of a gloved finger. Comfortably fitting in an adults hand, the computer fully meets MIL- STD 810G specifications for ruggedness.15/03/2012By Stewart Locke13 14. 15/03/2012 By Stewart Locke 14 15. 15/03/2012 By Stewart Locke 15 16. 15/03/2012 By Stewart Locke 16 17. 15/03/2012 By Stewart Locke 17 18. 15/03/2012 By Stewart Locke 18 19. 15/03/2012 By Stewart Locke 19 20. 15/03/2012 By Stewart Locke 20 21. 15/03/2012 By Stewart Locke 21
