Wrist action

Chester Gould, the creator of the Dick Tracy comic strip, was a rather innovative chap who gave his fictional detective a watch-like two-way wrist radio way back in 1946, when such devices where still the size of house bricks. For some reason, despite advances in technology, wrist radios and phone never took off. If anything the opposite seems to have happened with the phones replacing wrist watches.

However, as the above Trendhunter TV video shows, the carpal bone is making a comeback as a convenient mount for personal technology ranging from a thermo-electric battery to charge your phone, to a device that reminds you about whatever it is you’re forgetting.

My favourite is the the collapsible personal computer that you can wear as a bracelet. What’s yours?
