Retro Wearable Wrist Computer: Fashion and Technology Faux Pas Of The 80's

Yes, this prehistoric wearable gadget is the Seiko UC2000, a wearable wrist computer from 1984. The look is part watch, part "hey look, it's an enormous calculator strapped to my wrist". And what more is there to say, but thank goodness we've come as far as we have, not only from a technology perspective, but for the sake of fashion as well.

I remember the Seiko UC-2100! Think it sold for $350 which is why not many were sold except in Japan of course. Today the UC-2100 is a highly sought after relic by retro computer collectors. One offered still in the original box on e-Bay once sold for $2000
