iWatch?

So where is the iWatch?

I saw the black guy on the Kelly Rippa and ?Mike show wearing a big square Dick Tracy style thing that was too big for his sleeve to go over it. Looked pretty interesting. I guess I still have an interest in watches despite my therapists best efforts.

It would be difficult to read a book on such a device.

Not to worry, it will surely use a laser to project text directly onto your eyeballs. In a few years, we will just plug into the matrix and download the complete works of Dumas and Tolstoy into our brains. Screens are so early 21st century.

Actually not so difficult!
I started a thread a few years back about reading on an iPod Nano first gen. The screen is about a 1 1/4" square, pretty much the same size as the "Nano watch" of last year...

Wearable computers would probably be more practical than an iWatch. But the idea of having a display in full view on yourself and the computing power in another location, like a pocket is what Apple is after. I would fancy a sleeve instead of a watch or some kind of a wide bracelet with a large color eink display. This would make it thinner and less energy consuming. Then the real computer could be in the wallet? iWallet? iBracelet?

I vote for a brooch. I could wear it at exhibitions and shows with my videos on it.

Could be interesting but sometimes not practical. For instance what happens when you wash your hands? It would have to be part of some type of glove so it could be removed quickly. Then if you work with your hands like I do that screen would be ruined in no time like all my watches...

My favorite idea for a display would be a wireless contact lens that takes energy from my body like static electricity.

I have seen that back of the hand gadget too.

Was it on that Star Trek spinoff, some kind of trading post?

The old crystal radios used the energy of the signal to work. No external energies. Of course you could only listen to it with a headphone.

Oh yes.

The screen on the back of the hand snapped on.
Maybe some kind of embedded into the the skin or bone connector.

Think, tooth implant...

I've had a smashed wrist and a smashed ankle in two different accident. To help immobilize them without a cast ( because of the skin wounds that were next to them) they used metal rods screwed to healthy bone and other lengths that connected to one another outside of the body. It was fairly efficient but a big drawback was that I had to loosen the skin around the rods and disinfect everything twice a day otherwise infection could set in directly to the bone. I still get shivers from the weird feeling just thinking about it. Today's biotech is nowhere near Borg paraphernalia. And I can already feel in my mind the pain of just catching the display on a door jamb or in the trellis of a metal shopping cart! Yuck! Pulling the inserts out! Yuck! Yuck!

I made a mockup awhile ago out of pure boredom. I'm thinking of like something that would be called the iStyle/iWear . Wear it as a brooch, a necklace, a watch, on your pants like a Shuffle, on your bag, whatever.

I load flashcards into the photo section of the current 7th gen, it works for me! To be good for photos, this would need to be slightly bigger than the 6th gen I think.
