Just In Time Watch

nym | 01:16 PM

I'm extremely interested in the User Interface side of wearable computing, as well as the push / pull relationship between the devices we wear. It's one thing to be able to have a wearable computer (cellphone, PDA, wearcomp) that allows you to see your calendar. It's another thing to have that calendar remind you when an event is coming up. It's a whole other thing when the wearable computer tries to make intelligent decisions about the event and your surroundings in order to push more information to the user, especially in a simple and easy to understand way.

This video communicates exactly what excites me about wearable computing. Sure it's great that I have a cellphone that can look up movie times. It's a whole other thing to have a device that allows you to simply find out what movies are playing in the immediate vicinity that you can reasonably get to on time. Simply put, "Just In Time" rocks.

(watch the entire video and note the gesture user interface.... it's worth it)
