Xybernaut Corp., a provider of wearable/mobile computing hardware, software, and services, has been granted a patent by the Japan Patent Office (JPO) entitled "Mobile Computer with Audio Interrupt System." This patent relates to the previously granted, U.S. patents nos. 6,301,593 and 6,532,482 - with similar titles and disclosures.

The granted patent is expected to make hands-free, mobile computing, and communicating more simple and more efficient for Japan's mobile work force. The technology provides unique voice-activated power management features such as the ability to turn a computer on and off with audio commands.

"This patent includes the ability to use voice or audible commands to turn on or off selected components of a computer or other smart device," said Edward G. Newman, chairman and CEO of Xybernaut. "Since this patent does not call for a hands-free display, it should be of interest to the cellphone, PDA, and gaming industries as they continue to evolve their products into more full-function computing devices. In its most simple applications, this IP offers the ability to extend usable battery life and control heat without making any physical changes to batteries or hardware."
