accidental wearables

i made a very geeky discovery on the commute today. if i put something between the lids of my notebook while carrying it in my bag, i can keep the notebook on while walking. instant ipod at no additional cost. since i rarely part from my bag, this could be described as my first wearable. now, for some interesting applications:

  • listening to chris lydon interviews
  • give text-to-speech software a run for its money
  • eventually receive location-aware annotations
