What if you wore your computer like jewelry? Wimm Labs has put together an open-source microsystem that just might become part of your apparel.
Based on heavily modified Android software, the 1.5 x 1.5 x 0.5-in. device weighs just 0.77 oz. and can be clipped to a bag strap, put on a shirt collar or worn like a pendant. The tiny system, called the Wimm One, offers 32GB of storage space, has a 1.4-in. multitouch screen and supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Wimm hopes developers will extend both the hardware and software to create new devices and simple apps that run on them. Currently available apps focus on simple, personal tasks like getting Twitter updates and tracking how many calories you burned working out.
