about PARC forum


We will demonstrate the latest business and consumer gadgets and toys. We will walk you through products you can think about using to impress that special relative or friend. In this session, we rapidly go through a long list of products that can improve, excite, or complicate our lives. We will cover the good, the bad, and the incredibly ugly and do it all with our tongue solidly stuck in our cheeks. As much entertainment as content, this is one session you will remember into the new year. See wearable computers, mobile power options, fingertip styli, miniature whiteboards, Pocket PCs (even pockets for PCs), the revolutionary Modular Computer, and many surprises you won't find at you local office outlet store. Don't leave early, or you will miss the fun.
