The key characters of wearable computers are small size, so many kinds of functions, a lot of peripheral equipments and high integration level. Because of the much demand on multimedia technology, there are many kinds of periphery devices, so are the kinds of interfaces. For example, serial port, MCP, USB and PCMCIA etc. If these interfaces are integrated, not only the design will be more complex, but also the system's size will become larger, and the system has the limited expansion. It is the USB that standardizes many kinds of interfaces using four pins standard plug. Applying the USB technology to the wearable computers will make up for the losses described above. This paper introduces the wearable computing technology, USB technology and expounds a new method of applying USB to the design of wearable computers.
