 Update on the IBM/Citizen Linux WatchPad

Linux Devices reports on the IBM/Citizen Linux WatchPad.

"Akihiko Mizutani, a researcher from IBM's Tokyo Research Laboratory, demonstrated the capabilities of the device, showing Lehrbaum how the WatchPad scans fingerprints (using a thermal sensor made by Atmel), tracks motion, controls external devices with its Bluetooth signals, and . . . well . . . tells time."
