Can’t bear the thought of leaving your laptop behind while you’re on vacation? Here’s a new travel gadget released just last month that you’ll love: the Ridgeline W200 Wearable Computer designed by Glacier Computer to wear on your wrist.
The 10.2-ounce W200 is made of lightweight but durable reinforced magnesium alloy and is ergonomically designed to form to the contours of the arm. The water-resistant W200 features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS capabilities, 3.5-inch color display and touch-screen, a stylus pen, and uses the Windows CE or Linux operating systems.

Vice president John Geary says that companies “looking to deploy hands-free computing” are the primary customers for the W200 right now, or others who work for information-saturated fields like defense, security or emergency services.
Still, I have a feeling that some adventurous techie travelers would really dig the futuristic James Bond-ness of the W200. That is, if they can fork over $2,000 to purchase one.
