@_hm, it's interesting you ask if GoPro is wearable. Of course it is, at least in my book. You wear it, your device comes with wifi and it has software to get connected to your smartphone. On the other hand, I bet you would agree that Google Glass is 'wearable.' So, what's the difference? With Google Glass, you can push and pull information with the cloud. GoPro is designed to push data to the cloud. But my point is, if you are asking people to 'wear' any device, its wearability should come with distinct purpose. Fitbit does. Glucose meter does. GoPro does.

Is GoPro wearable device?

It is little difficult for me to classify GoPro camera as wearable device. Yes, it is an accessories to sprot and very useful at that. But so many other devices are in that category.

It is not very well defined, but wearable devices are little different from that - I guess. Let us wait for Apple to to define it for us. I hope this time they too do not fumble.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
