Wearable Computing Exhibit

Meeting the Challenge: the path towards a consumer wearable computer

In the July 2001 issue of IEEE Micro Thad Starner laid out the major challenges of wearable computing. The challenges included Power, Networking, and Interface. In the past 13 years we have come a long way in meeting some of these challenges. Using Thad Starner's extensive collection of on-body and wearable devices we are forming an educational and interactive exhibition to showcase the strides made in wearable computing. We will use this exhibition to present the evolution of electronic textiles, advances in battery life, on-body interfaces, and head mounted displays.
