`WearCam' is a portable, and in fact wearable, system
that has many of the features found
on a desktop multimedia computer: one or more
cameras, microphones, high speed video processing and communications link,
as well as its own Internet address.
These items are miniaturized and placed within the wearer's clothing
and the like, rather than on the desktop.
The connectivity is wireless (the details of the communications channel are
]), using hat-mounted antennas,
and battery power, so that the user has tetherless online connectivity.
The apparatus is worn
in a natural fashion, so that it can be used, at times,
without (much) conscious thought or
effort, and while performing other activities.
