The WearIT@Work project has some beautifully SciFi goals for wearable computing. And they are doing something about it.
Imagine your work completely different.
Imagine you have an intelligent assistant able to find any information you need, whenever and wherever.
Imagine your personal assistant is always with you, without disturbing you.
Imagine you can use this assistant when you want and you can forget him when you don’t need.
We are creating for you what you are dreaming of!
They are developing standards for wearable computing as well as running a number of pilot studies. The consortium consists of companies and universities and researchers from around Europe (and Israel). And they participate (organize?) the International Forum on Applied Wearable Computing.
