Parvus Zypad WL 1000 Personal Wrist Computer
by Mark R
I have always imagined that the future will be a computer on everyone’s wrist. Some sort of Personal Wrist Computer (PWC) that is larger than a wristwatch, but not bulky enough to slow the user down.
It would appear that Parvus is ready for this coming era with the development of the Zypad WL 1000. As you can see, this PWC does look a little bulky, but you have to give the company credit for trying something that will probably be the future.
The Zypad WL 1000 has a 3.5 inch touchscreen with 640 x 480 resolution. The screen comes with an automatic contrast mode that allows it to be used, even in the direct sunlight.
The operating system is a custom Linux OS, and it features GPS, Wi-Fi, as well as support for Bluetooth and even Zigbee.
The case itself is somewhat lightweight, weighing in at only 23 ounces. It is also durable, made to withstand water, dust, and extreme temperatures. Something tells me this is good for “hostile conditions”.
So is this Zypad going to be standard issue for soldiers of the future? Or is this going to be the standard mobile device for everyone, civilian or soldier in the world to come? Time will tell, of course.
