Wearable computing brings computation much closer to the user for everyday tasks and may be worn during most of the day. However, with CPU and wireless network intensive applications, higher power microprocessors and radio links are necessary resulting in increased heat generation. This paper suggests a method to increase the hear dissipation capability per unit surface area of a mobile computer by coupling it to the user. In addition, this paper presents tools and guidelines for determining the placement of heat dissipating components.
