Take note as you will be hearing much more of wearable computing in the years to come. Google had just announced early this month its own exciting project to create a pair of self-contained augmented reality glasses, named Project Glass. So now, it would be as good a time as ever for other companies to share their own plans and research on the subject.
Valve Software, best known for the games Half-Life and Portal, has just come out, through a blog post by developer Michael Abrash, that it’s also started doing some R&D on wearable computing. But first a brief intro on Michael, he has been in tech for over thirty years and has worked at Microsoft as the graphics lead for Windows NT, then at Id working on Quake, then working on the Xbox and finally on Intel’s Larrabee GPU architecture. In two words, he is a real heavy weight.
