Wearable computing; dawn of digital man
A camera/video camera in your glasses and a smart phone in your wrist watch; those are some of the promises of wearable computing technology! How far have we progressed along the computing road? A few decades ago, when I was a PhD student, my research was carried out on a mainframe computer which provided computing power for the entire campus, including payroll, research and teaching. Then it was but a dream to have personal computing facilities.
Well, since then, computers have evolved from mainframes to super computers and devolved to personal computers, the so-called PCs. These were initially desktops, then laptops and now seem to be settling as tablets. So, computers have become truly personal and mobile; and the trend continues with wearable devices like the Google Glass and smart wrist watches.
