This paper describes two display systems developed by Honeywell under a DARPA program called Handheld and Bodyworn Graphical Display. The bodyworn display is worn on the wrist and has a wireless interface to the computer. The transmitter is attached to the standard VGA connector of a wearable computer. It transmits 16 color VGA (640/spl times/480) at 30 frames/sec over a 53 Mbit/sec RF link to the bodyworn display. The display is similar to the ones used in our helmet-mounted displays but is packaged to be worn on the arm or held in your hand. The second display system incorporates a hand held computer with a "see through" display. This computer is intended to be worn around the neck like a pair of binoculars. The optics allow a distant image, which is viewed through the scope, to be superimposed with a VGA display. The development and the applications of these novel display systems will be discussed.
