Motorola Debuts Wearable PC

Motorola has rolled out the HC1 Headset Computer, which responds to voice commands or a tilt of the head.

The HC1 has advanced speech recognition and natural language software that supports six languages for responsive application command and control. Dual bidirectional noise-cancelling microphones and a near-ear loudspeaker (which can be replaced with noise-cancelling ear buds) keep communications loud and clear. The headset's accelerometer and digital compass deliver smooth gesture control and accurate direction and position orientation for navigating through applications.

Users can configure the micro-display and near-ear loudspeaker depending on their needs. Adjustable straps provide a custom fit and removable comfort pads can be cleaned or replaced, allowing one device to be used by multiple workers. The HC1 supports a variety of encrypted Bluetooth-enabled data entry options, making it a dynamic, highly customizable tool.

Accessory interface and available options are also available, such as a modular accessory interface for USB connectivity.
