    The most recent project of Dr. Chandra Narayanaswami, PhD (RPI), and Manager, Wearable Computing, IBM TJ Watson Research Center, is Soulpad. Briefly, SoulPad allows a user to personalize a PC and resume complete computing environments without carrying the whole PC around. An video demonstrating the prototype is available at http://www.research.ibm.com/WearableComputing/SoulPad/SoulPadVideo.wmv and more information about the technique is available at http://www.research.ibm.com/WearableComputing/SoulPad/soulpad.html.
