Scientists have finally found a worthwhile use for technology and placed a pub-detecting global positioning system inside a wristwatch.
The watch provides the wearer with the location of the nearest four pubs and his/her distance from each one.
The beer-loving boffins of Bristol University developing the HandPC have also included a feature that provides a short description of each watering hole.
The HandPC is a collaboration between the university’s science department and HP’s wearable computing project.
The researchers have also developed a jacket that can give its wearer a guided tour of Bristol, reports the Western Daily Press.
