"Wearable computers need a nanosize operating system. That's the
philosophy of MIT spinoff InfoCharms, which will describe Nanux,
its forthcomingwearable computer OS, later this month at the
Everywhere Internet show in San Francisco.
'There are a whole set of problems that are unique to wearable
computers but that must be faced by an operating system,' said Alex
Lightman, CEO at InfoCharms, which is readying a brooch-style
Internet-ready communicator based on the slimmed-down Linux-like OS
for release next year.
'We hope that Nanux will become the Linux of wearable
computers,' Lightman said. Nanux will make use of WAP. The
company has already shown prototypes of designs using open
standards for inexpensive development."
