Computer accessibility and wearable computing

April 21, 2003 - Categories: research

Panthera Altaica is into wearable computing because of computer accessibility.
Hmmm. Interesting. From e-mail:

I’m working on a interface that’s is basicaly a suped up CLI based on
Multi User Forth(RPN, stack), Perl(CPAN, moduals) and HTML 4(programs
control the information that is display not how to display the
information). It should allow the quick intery of commands and the
commands should be independant from the UI.

I’m plaining on a Forth and Lisp displays for the stack for the
demostration. I still only have vagist ideas on how to handle the
File system, text, images.
