Ubiquitous Fashionable Computer from Korea

KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) is reporting from the Korean next generation IT-SoC 2005 & New Generation PC Fair about the much anticipated UFC, also known as the Ubiquitous Fashionable Computer.

The wearable PC features an augmented reality HMD (640 x 480 pixel), wrist keyboard and a VR glove. One highlight is the data exchange capability with a throwing gesture, much like how one would throw a baseball. And get this – you can throw somebody wearing a UFC an MP3 file and it is transferred wirelessly to that user, it can also transmit other general data like video clips or word document files.

With the HMD (Head Mounted Display) device and globe input device, you can enjoy computing in any environment. You can also use voice recognition functions.

No word yet on price or when the rest of us may be able to virtually throw our own data and MP3 files at friends and loved ones, but let’s hope we don’t have to wait to long.
