A wearable computer(Augmented Reality) is a computing device small and light enough to be worn on one's body without causing discomfort. Unlike a laptop or a palmtop , wearable computer is constantly turned on and interacts with the a real-world task. Information could be even very context sensitive.
CharacteristicsWearable computers should be worn like glasses, watches, and clothing.The interaction between the person and computer should be context-based.The display and input should be unobtrusive.Wireless Personal Area Networks.Wearable computers should act as an intelligent assistant.
