Hot New Gadget: Watch & Game?

The watch with the computer brain.
Everything old is new again... Here's word that TI and Fossil want to bring back the computer watch, this time as an accessory to your smartphone. Featuring an OLED screen and Bluetooth, this wearable computer would give you updates from your smartphone without the need to reach into your pocket. Or, I guess, interrupt the game you're already playing. It's called the Metawatch.

It also has an accelerometer in it, so of course it leads one to start thinking about gaming on watches... maybe you could have a little character designed just for the low-res screen (96 x 96 pixels). Maybe you could call him... Mr. Game & Watch? Just an idea...
