I have been interested in wearable computing for a while. Until the RaspberryPi was released, there was no affordable and compact option for the computer part of a wearable computer. My original setup used a laptop in a backpack, but that is a little too big to be practical. I have seen a lot of arduino based wearable electronics, but they are not exactly what I have been looking for – a full power desktop computer that you can carry around at your side and use while walking, standing, sitting, or doing anything else.
As a linux guy for many years, the RaspberryPi is the perfect solution to my problem, and I’m already comfortable with the OS.
