Itsy Pocket Computer


Itsy Pocket Computer

The Itsy Pocket Computer is a small, low-power, handheld device with a highly flexible interface. It was designed at Digital Equipment Corporation's Western Research Laboratory to encourage novel user interface development - for example, it had accelerometers to detect movement and orientation as early as 1999.

Hardware

* CPU: DEC StrongARM SA-1100 processor
* Memory: 16 MiBs of DRAM, 4 MiB's of Flash memory.
