Wearable Computers is one such invention that facilitates us to look through the portals of human computer interaction based on small body worn computer system that is always ON and always ready and accessible.Abstract Technology has manifestated itself into micro miniature forms with the power and processing speeds compatible to the rather cumbersome titanic counterparts. .
military. As the name suggests these computers are worn on the body like a piece of clothing. Wearable computers are especially useful for applications that require computational support while the user's hands. health monitoring systems. voice. Wearable computers have been applied to areas such as behavioral modeling.Over view Wearable computers break the boundary. and health professionals have all incorporated wearable computers into their daily operations. eyes or attention are actively engaged with the physical environment . Government organizations. information technologies and media development.
Operational modes of variable computers Constancy Augmentation Mediation .
The signal flow from human to computer. it does not need to be opened up and turned on prior to use. Unlike a hand-held device. . or PDA. and is ``always ready'' to interact with the user. laptop computer. and computer to human. runs continuously to provide a constant user--interface.Constancy The computer runs continuously.
The assumption of wearable computing is that the user will be doing something else at the same time as doing the computing. or augment the senses. Wearable computing.Augmentation : Traditional computing paradigms are based on the notion that computing is the primary task. Thus the computer should serve to augment the intellect. The signal flow between human and computer is depicted . . is based on the notion that computing is NOT the primary task. however.
Signal flow between computer and human .
so the concept of encapsulation is diveded in to the two aspects they are 1.privacy . o.Mediation This concept allowes us for the greater degree of encapsulation . o-solitude 2.
and allow us to block out material we might not wish to experience. . or simply a desire to replace existing media with different media.O-solitude It can function as an information filter. In less severe manifestations. it may simply allow us to alter our perception of reality in a very mild sort of way. whether it be offensive advertising.
the wearable computer may. .O-privacy Mediation allows us to block or modify information leaving our encapsulated space. serve as an intermediary for interacting with untrusted systems. In the same way that ordinary clothing prevents others from seeing our naked bodies. for example. such as third party digital anonymous cash ``cyberwallets''.

Most notably. . and in which the user can do so while walking around or doing other activities. Wearable Computer technology acts as a gang plank to bridge the chasm between the personal computer and personalized computer thus. and has both operational and interactional constancy. is always on and always accessible. i. combatting the delusions posed by the former. controlled by the user.e. and into which the user can always enter commands and execute a set of such entered commands. it is a device that is always with the user.Conclusion A wearable computer is a computer that is subsumed into the personal space of the user.
