Every so often I see a piece of mobile technology that I really want to get my hands on. Most recently, that’s been the Looxcie 2 – which is probably best described as a wearable camcorder.

Jawbone, a company that's probably best known for its noise-cancelling Bluetooth headsets, is planning high-tech jewellery that'll also keep an eye on your health.

Motorola has entered into an agreement with semiconductor company Kopin Corporation to develop a hands-free computer that’s worn as a headset. The device will offer full voice, audio and PC capabilities with a virtual 15-inch monitor.
Hyundai Mobile says its MB-910 watch phone (or 'phone watch', if you prefer) will be available in the UK by the summer - and it's likely to sell for £200 SIM-free. That's considerably less than the similarly-named LG G910 watch phone, which is expected to have a £1000 price tag when it turns up towards the end of the year. The touch-screen tri-band MB-910 weighs 58g and can manage up to 3 hours of talk time or 70 hours on standby.
