Now you have a choice – You do not have to feel like a cyborg with a bluetooth headset in your ear all day. You can wear it on your wrist as your watch and only place it in your ear when you have a call. You can have the convenience of a bluetooth but the freedom of not having it attached to your ear at all times.
When there is an incoming call, you simply detach the hands free unit and, with its soft rubber ear piece, use it as a normal earphone. When the call ends the hands free unit can be re-attached onto the strap, providing maximum comfort as you do not need to wear the main unit on your ear at all times. Also you need not worry about misplacing your Bluetooth – it’s always at your wrist and can be used on outgoing calls like any other bluetooth headset.

Most phones now have a camera and can run Java, there is no reason that some software couldn’t be written to watch for movement in the camera, and translate that into mouse signals for the PC. Bluetooth could be used to send the data to the PC. So there was the challenge, a java program that took multiple frames from the nokia camera, translated that into direction and speed and sent it to the PC as mouse movements.
The software that is being used is still not available for download!
