Wearable Computing: A First Step Toward Personal Imaging

  title={Wearable Computing: A First Step Toward Personal Imaging},
  author={Steve Mann},
  journal={IEEE Computer},
Can you imagine hauling around a large, light-tight wooden trunk containing a co-worker or an assistant whom you take out only for occasional, brief interaction. For each session, you would have to open the box, wake up (boot) the assistant, and afterward seal him back in the box. Human dynamics aside, wouldn’t that person seem like more of a burden than a help? In some ways, today’s multimedia portables are just as burdensome.
