OnHand PC.

For those who feel Palm Pilots are just too darned bulky, Matsucom's onHand PC is a solid alternative in the guise of a wristwatch. Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's smallest computer, it includes gadgetry even Dick Tracy would envy, such as a mini-joystick; a PC interface; scheduling, address book and accounting software; text, sound and image viewers; and four preinstalled games. (More games are free on the website). The guts of the machine include a 16-bit CPU, 128KB of memory, and a 6,000-pixel LCD display. Incidentally, it's also a dandy timepiece, with an alarm system, chronograph, countdown timer and globe-spanning clock. The onHand PC is the first foray into the hardware market by Matsucom's parent company, Japan-based Globalcom Inc. a specialist in Internet, intranet and industrial software development. $299 retail.
