Description: The Parvus Zypad 'WR1100' is designed for harsh field conditions, where hands-free operation is a necessity. This military-targeted personal wrist computer is perfectly adapted for such an environment. Its 2006 predecessor was awarded the Frost & Sullivan Product Innovation Award for "ambient intelligence", and this new, faster, and higher-resolution model, with greater memory capacity is better than ever. Now offered exclusively with Linux, it is aimed at military, homeland defence, first responder, security and emergency service field and in-vehicle operations.
Its light weight fibreglass-reinforced nylon/magnesium alloy casing, resistant to water and dust ingress, protects the powerful technology within, which may include: Bluetooth radio or ZigBee short-range wireless, GPS receiver or GPRS cellular module, and options for an electronic compass and biometric finger-print sensor. The device also has an orientation sensor that detects when the arm is lowered and so switches to standby mode to conserve battery life. Revolutionary "tilt and dead reckoning" system is capable of determining if the user is motionless or fallen, and can automatically transmit a locator beacon signal.
