A group of engineers and scientists working out of the University of Alabama at Birmingham have gone ahead and developed a cloud computing system consisting of 10 Raspberry Pi computers -- which may not sound all that impressive until you realize that this computing system is embedded in a wearable leather jacket.
This wearable cloud computing system comes complete with a trio of power banks as well as a remote touchscreen facility. This setup makes it possible for users to connect all their devices, outsource energy needs and make the cloud computing processes less expensive. The system offers users a more than considerable 320 GB of storage space as well as 10 GB of RAM, making it more powerful than any smartphone.
This Raspberry Pi-powered jacket is truly a masterful work of engineering, and something that proves that the future of cloud computing could be wearable.
