HP Developing Solar Watch For Military

HP Labs has announced that they are working on a solar powered watch for the military. The watches will all be linked together on a network and will be capable of displaying maps, communicating, and other strategic information.

HP says that the prototype will be finished within a year. The idea of making it solar powered came from the thought that solar would make it more reliable in tense situations. The watch’s solar cells come from an ultra-thin sheet containing solar cells. The display for the watch is made from a new plastic display, rather than glass, which is similar to the kind of plastic used in e-book readers.
