Abstract

Disclosed is a device for enhancing cooling of wearable computer (PC). This device has 5 advantages. 1. High Cooling performance for wearable PC 2. Length adjustable for the person who uses wearable PC. 3. Collapsible while the wearable PC is not operated. 4. Thin and Smart 5. Highly reliable use and long life With them, the highest performance CPU can be used for mobile computer. The heat dissipation of high performance wearable PC may amount to that of notebook PC. On the other hand, the size of wearable PC is one third or one fourth of notebook PC. That means the room for cooling parts is not taken enough. Therefore, new cooling method for wearable PC is desired. Figure-1 shows the proposed thermal belt. Wearable PC (1) is attached to this belt (2).
