Wearable, tetherless computer-mediated reality

Such a computational framework allows one to subsume all of the personal electronics devices that one might normally carry, such as: into a single device. Obviously, since it is a fully featured computer, it is possible to respond to email, plan events on a calendar, type a report, or the like, while walking, standing in line at the bank, or the like. It this way WearComp anticipated the later arrival of the so-called ``laptop computer'', but has advantages over the laptop computer in the sense that it can be used while walking around doing other things. However, the real power of WearComp is in its ability to serve as a basis for Personal Imaging and Humanistic Intelligence.
