New meaning for 'Beer:30'

Watch-sized computer will provide directions to nearest pub

Jan 18, 2002 - Technicians at England's Bristol University have designed a watch-sized computer that can provide a step-by-step guide to the nearest pub. The HandPC even gives a short description of each venue.


Wherever the wearer goes the HandPC can connect to a global positioning satellite. A display will then appear on the screen giving details of the four nearest pubs and the distance to each.

The HandPC is part of a wearable computing project being worked on by the Bristol Computer Science department and Hewlett Packard Laboratories.
