Wearable designs, devices, and prototypes were on display March 5-7 at Wearables DevCon in Burlingame, Calif. Click through the next five pages to see the most interesting devices and reference designs from the show floor.
Maybe I'm missing something here, but the smart glasses seemed like a fairly underwhelming example of AR. There are much smaller groups out right now putting some very interesting AR systems into practice. Maybe Sony was showing off the hardware more than the software? Seems like their demo video just didn't have a whole lot to it.
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.
