The concept is pretty awesome, this small touch screen bluetooth screen that can be worn as a watch can interact with any of your Bluetooth enabled Android devices, it's got an SDK for app developers to add Bluetooth remote functionality for their apps. I'm hoping someone make remote controlling for VOIP apps, calling contacts, and other useful Android apps on your smartphone or tablet.

Motorola Head-mounted Computer Gen.2 Kopin Golden-i

Posted by Charbax – February 22, 2010

Imagine walking around with a head-mounted 15" display to view informations available to you at all times. This system features a pretty cool six-axis position tracker from Hillcrest Labs that allows you to operate a cursor with nearly pixel-for-pixel accuracy by just moving around your head when for example panning around a large image or a map. There is a highly targetted microphone that understands voice-commands where you can for example zoom in on maps or images, you can exit back to the programs menu, launch specific applications and open specific files.

Here are the specs of this Second Generation Kopin Golden-i Motorola-branded Head-mounted Computer system:
