Wrist-worn computer is a marine’s rugged bracelet


Wearable computing gets a new yet rugged makeover. Nothing for style actually, the Zypad WR1100 is only a rugged wrist-worn wirelessly operated computer for the sturdy heads. Measuring 4.5 x 3.5 x 3-inches, the 23-ounce device is churned in special made fiberglass-reinforced nylon-magnesium alloy, a casing which helps the Zypad to attain the ruggedness that its purpose of design demands. Using Linux for its operating system, the shock- and dust-proof device features a touchscreen display with 640X480 resolution. With as little as 256MB RAM and 128MB flash memory the Zypad also features a GPS receiver, electronic compass, biometric fingerprint sensor, 802.11 and Bluetooth/Zigbee interfaces. The Zypad WR1100 with an intelligent built-in feature switches to a standby mode when the users hand’s left hanging down for long. Built just for military use initially, the device has a potential to go into mass production.
