Trendhunter covered the original, wearable computer (Zypad WL1000 model) back in 2006. The new version (Zypad WR1100) has gotten a bit clunkier, but has gained a few more functions.

The Zypad WR1100 can be viewed in direct sunlight and is water, dust, and shock resistant. It also has “802.11 and Bluetooth/Zigbee interfaces, a GPS receiver, electronic compass, biometric fingerprint sensor, and a tilt and dead reckoning system that detects the position of the user’s arm and sets the system to standby mode when the arm is hanging down beside the body.”
