  1. Ooh… HUD with a Twiddler. You guys hang out with Thad and the other wearables folks?

  2. Wow, an Orinoco WLAN card – that brings back memories!

  3. The Twiddler! Sometimes I miss 1999.

  4. I’m /really/ curious about one thing: Why don’t you guys still wear these? More specifically, why don’t YOU wear it now? I can think of a million reasons for wanting that rig on, and very few for not wanting it, so I’m always wondering why people stop, and I would really like to understand what the down side is before I invest in my own rig.

  5. @james – speaking for me (pt) who has worn different type of these before in public, it was always project-based – none of this is final shipping hardware. i considered it more like user testing, with me being the user.


    however, the elements of building and trying these systems out for me personally has helped put the ideas and learnings in other products.

    a good example will be the FLORA when we release it, it’s not a “rig” you wear in the same way, but from using these previous systems i learned what i want to do, and more important what i -do not- want to do.
