Tech/Engineering - Computers (general)
|English term or phrase: wearable computer|
|Wearable computers are computers that are worn on the body. They have been applied to areas such as behavioral modeling, health monitoring systems, information technologies and media development. Government organizations, military, and health professionals have all incorporated wearable computers into their daily operations. Wearable computers are especially useful for applications that require computational support while the user's hands, voice, eyes or attention are actively engaged with the physical environment.|
One of the main features of a wearable computer is consistancy. There is a constant interaction between the computer and user, ie. there is no need to turn the device on or off. Another feature is the ability to multi-task. It is not necessary to stop what you are doing to use the device; it is augmented into all other actions. These devices can be incorporated by the user to act like a prosthetic. It can therefore be an extension of the user’s mind and/or body. (Wikipedia)
He visto que se usa "llevable" y "ponible". De momento me suena mejor llevable, pero tal vez los expertos conozcáis o hayáis inventado algo mejor.
