BeagleBoard finds new purpose in DIY wearable computer

We’ve already seen the small and flexible BeagleBoard used for a couple of different DIY projects, but few quite as impressive as this wearable computer built by Martin Magnusson. In addition to complementing any outfit, this rig runs Angstrom Linux, uses a modified pair of Myvu Crystal video glasses (and some stylish shades) for a display, and simply relies on a Bluetooth keyboard for input and a tethered iPhone for internet connectivity. Of course, if the shoulder strap isn’t your thing, Martin has also demonstrated that the rig can discreetly fit in a standard CD case — check it out after the break, and hit up the source link below for a look at the complete build process.
