Digits for your digits - the Seiko UC-2000 wrist computer

3 September 2009

Around the time you thought television couldn't get any better than Automan, some folk were digging their own vision of the future. Behold - the Seiko UC-2000 wrist computer:

With its handsome leather strap and a screen resolution of 50 x 28, there was no doubt that you were going places circa 1984 with this awesome technology attached to your arm - assuming you could actually lift it off the floor.

    That's just silly - I used one of these and you weren't meant to wear to computer part! The watch fitted into the computer part and communicated through induction - v cool then! You wore just the watch and used the computer part on your desk!!!
  • Lumoruk
    I'm right handed and wear my watch on my left wrist
  • Apple S.
    If that crap was made by Apple some idiots would probably buy it!
  • what p.
    most right handed people where their watch on their left wrist...you will very rarely see anyone with a watch on their right wrist and when you do see it they are most likely left handed.

    My brother had one of these back in the day, and I can tell you they were 'THE' shit back then, the utter bollocks, you don't actually wear the computer on your hand you donks, you clip the watch into it when you want to program it with dates and shit.

    Looks like the kind of thing they'd have in Flight of the Conchords. It's a calculator - watch to go with the camera - phone!

    I had its brother the Seiko RC-1000 http://i10.tinypic.com/82dkivm.jpg Rather than using a keypad (which you didn't wear in your wrist - stupid picture, above!), it came with a serial cable for a PC program. You entered contact etc into the program and downloaded them to the watch. Funnily enough, I found the cable recently - haven't seen the watch for ages.
