Zypad WR1100 – Military Spec Wrist Computer
The military are getting closer to becoming the future warriors that we’ve seen in many a sci-fi flick.
Next for their armoury isÂ this wrist computer.
The Zypad WR1100 is a 23 ounce, built-for-war, wireless computer operating with a Linux OS.
ItÂ packs a 640X480 touch screen that’s water, dust and shock resistant, as well as being clearly readable in direct sunlight which all makes perfect sense 🙂
Other features include â€œ802.11 and Bluetooth/Zigbee interfaces, a GPS receiver, electronic compass, biometric fingerprint sensor, and a tilt and dead reckoning system that detects the position of the userâ€™s arm and sets the system to standby mode when the arm is hanging down beside the body.â€
Gosh! Will that be an end to films having a “Man Down!” bit?
So, if you like military hardware, goÂ in for extreme sports or actually are part of our defenses it sounds a pretty handy bit of kit to me.
Wonder if there’ll be a slimmer, civi version soon?
What do you reckon?
