HC1 could be be a step forwards for organizations to implement wearable, hands-free computing.

Motorola has developed the HC1 Headset Computer that can be operated using voice commands and head movement. The futuristic-looking headset ventures into werable technology to allow workers to quickly and conveniently access information anywhere and everywhere. Unlike Google Glasses that target consumers and office workers, the HC1 is aimed at professionals within the construction and engineering fields where they are often required to be constantly on the  move.

The hands-free computing set features an adjustable micro-display that provides the view of a 15-inch laptop screen. The device also includes a camera, microphone, 3D accelerator, micro SD card slot, and is able to run Windows CE Professional. Users can access documents through voice commands, and view a large page of information by simply moving their heads around.
