| Most wearable computers weâve seen feature a 
| head-mounted display tethered to a small PC 
| system in a backpack or worn on a belt. Hereâs 
| a slick little system that does away with the 
| cord, fitting the entire system in the glasses.
| [Pascal Brissetâs] WXHMD is based on the tiny 
| Gumstix Overo Fire computer-on-module which 
| features a beefy, 3D-capable OMAP processor 
| that runs Linux.

| Linux provides the ability to partition safety 
| and non safety critical elements of the same 
| application on a single hardware platform. It 
| also provides high potential for features and 
| innovative middleware, often adding a layer of 
| complexity if safety is required.

| headset (left), providing a "virtual 15-inch display" via a swing-down
| eyepiece. The "Golden-i" incorporates speech recognition, weighs three
| ounces, and runs Linux or Windows CE for more than eight hours per charge,
| says the company.

| Whereas the WL-1000 offers a choice of Linux or Windows CE, the new WR1100 is
| offered exclusively with Linux. In place of the Raza Microelectronics 32-bit
| MIPS-based AU 1100, the WR100 is equipped with a Marvell PXA 270 clocked at
| 416MHz, and it comes with 256MB RAM, 128MB flash, and an SD card, says
| Parvus. The device offers a higher-resolution (640 x 480) 3.5-inch
| touchscreen that is said to be protected against water and dust ingress.
