The Google Glass with its trendy design has given a whole new dimension to the wearable gadgets. Following the footsteps of Google, Motorola Solutions has come up with a new wearable computer dubbed “HC1” that might not look as stylish as Google Glass but packs latest technology to ensure enhanced computing. Developed around Kopin’s Golden-i wearables technology, the Motorola HC1 is just ideal for the defense, utilities, telecommunications and aerospace or aviation industries.
Suspending a micro-display, running at SVGA 800 x 600 resolution, like a virtual 15-inch panel in front of the wearer, the HC1 system works with a power-frugal 800MHz OMAP3 dualcore running Windows CE 6.0 professional with a custom speech recognition engine. Featuring twin bi-directional noise-canceling microphones to talk with a remote support agent, with photos, video and audio feedback, the rugged device also includes WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, USB and a 9-axis head-tracking accelerometer with digital compass. In addition, the HC1 user can give voice commands to move across the OS.
