Hewlett-Packard Laboratories, Bristol and the University of Bristol Department of Computer Science are engaged in an initiative to explore the design, technology and use of wearable computers. We describe a way of connecting a wearable computer to companion devices such as displays or cameras using near-field radio technology. The short-range nature of near-field radio allows relatively high data rates (300 kbps-1 Mbit), low power consumption and the interpretation of gestures as configuration requests.
Date of Conference: 19-20 Oct. 1998
