Wearing a computer at work

Roland Piquepaille's Technology Trends discusses a European Union funded project that is related to wearable technology:

This project, named WearIT@work will end in one year and was funded with 14.3 million euros of EU money, even if the total project cost is expected to exceed 23 million euros.

This wearable system is currently being tested in four different fields including aircraft maintenance, emergency response, car production and healthcare.
