Tutor description

With computing devices becoming smaller and smaller it is now possible for an individual to don such a device like a hat or jacket. It is clear that these technology will enable us to extent the desktop resources (including memory computation and communication) to anywhere in travel. Also this constant access, augmented by a battery of body mounted sensors will enable a computer to be sensitive to the activities in which we are engaged and thus allow the computer to participate in an active manner as we perform our tasks. This area includes computer science, computer engineering and psychology.

That is the system must adapt to the whims and fancies of the user instead of the user having to adapt his lifestyle for the system. The system must provide seamless information transfer whenever the user requires it.HISTORY:The concept of wearable computing was first brought forward by Steve Mann, who, with his invention of the 'Wear Comp' in 1979 created a pioneering effort in wearable computing. Although the effort was great, one of the major disadvantages was the fact that it was nothing more than a miniature PC. Absence of lightweight, rugged and fast proc
