Oakley – Thump

I am kind of interested in wearable computing. Computing needs grow from year to year, devices get smaller and smaller, but I am yet to see something comfortable and useful. Todays devices have either look and feel bulky or have too many wires. Neat appliances are rare to find.

Today I cam across something that looks neat – Oakley – Thump. It is an mp3 player integrated into sunglasses. It comes with a USB interface and either 128 MB or 256 MB storage option. This is one excellent idea.

I just wish it had longer battery life. Currently it can playback for 6 hours after full charge, according to specs. Bigger storage option would be nice too, but I am sure those will come soon.
