For instance, the military version of Microvision's Nomad helmet-mounted display delivers a virtual cockpit interface to commanders in the field. Or take Xybernaut, which is developing belt-mounted mobile and wearable computers with integrated satellite communications units allowing soldiers to export wirelessly and continuously their location. In the mean time, General Dynamics C4 Systems is building GoBook tablet computers powered by direct-liquid fuel cells which could become potential replacements for current ground air-traffic-control computers.
The original article describes other wearable technologies as well, so be sure to read it. In this column, I'm just focusing on the Microvision's Nomad helmet-mounted display.
