The Beagleboard is a fan-less single board computer. As such, it can be put to work in a variety of functions. The coolest and newest one? A designed named Martin Magnusson has turned the humble Beagleboard into a wearable computer. Yeah, for a site called Crunchwear, that pretty much makes our heads explode.
The rig runs Angstrom Linux, uses a modified pair of Myvu CrystalÂ video glasses for a display, and relies on a Bluetooth keyboard for input and a tethered iPhone for internet connectivity. Pretty cool, right?
You wear it via Â a shoulder strap although the innards can also fit inside of a standard CD case. At lease there’s finally a use for that Collective Soul CD you’ve inexplicably held on to.
