Xybernaut sews up bright-light mobile PC

The flat-panel Atigo T/HB, designed for use in bright outdoor lighting, works as a wearable computer or as a wireless display.

Xybernaut has unveiled a flat-panel system intended to work both as a wireless outdoor display and a standalone wearable computer.

The Atigo T/HB was developed to work in "high, bright" outdoor-light conditions when its users cart it out of the office, the maker of wearable computers said on Thursday.

The 1.9-pound system, the third in Xybernaut's line of Atigo T dual-purpose computers, has an 8.4-inch touch screen with a resolution of 800 by 600 pixels. It comes with Wi-Fi support and uses a 1GHz processor from Transmeta.

"Though many of our customers' end users still spend a considerable amount of their time indoors, we wanted to be responsive to the needs of field employees who do indeed spend the majority of their time outside," Steven Newman, president of Fairfax, Va.-based Xybernaut, said in a statement.

The company said it has already taken orders for the Atigo T/HB from the U.S. Department of Defense and other organizations. The system is set become generally available this month. Pricing was not immediately available.
