Xybernaut Corp. has received its first utility patent for mobile/wearable computing and related technologies in China.

"Due to the involved nature of the process, relatively few U.S. companies maintain regular efforts to secure patent coverage in China and even fewer have been successful in the areas of computing and information technology," stated Edward G. Newman, chairman, president and CEO of Xybernaut. "We have come a long way since our first presentation to the Chinese PTO years ago."

According to Xybernaut, the patent grant recognizes the specific features that define a wearable computer, such as removable/transferable core components; docking stations and connector ports and PC card and network interface connectivity. This patent represents a breakthrough for the company since it lays the foundation for selling wearable computing solutions in China and is the result of several years of relationship building with the latter and other Far Eastern markets.
