Wear Hacks and Projects pages

It became clear during the wiki transition that I had a number of “get 'em on the field” hacks in a variety of formats and locations as well as other wearable related pages and I needed to gather them up.

As I clean up my site, this is where they will all be listed.  For now it is a growing list of links to where they currently reside.

:: [[|Charmit Wearable Kit]]
.. A local copy of the Charmed Technology site which sold the Charmit kit. This was a commercial open source wearable that Charmed sold from 2000 - 2004.  I was hired by Charmed in 1999 to design and build a wearable that could be built and used by hobbyists and those looking to explore the field.  This is the product that came out of that endeavor.

:: [[|The CHORD project]]
.. The CHORD project was a design I submitted to [[|Embedded Linux Journel's]] MZ104 "Hack Embedded Linux for Fun and Prizes" contest.  It was a finalist and I won an MZ104 board and developers kit.  This is my (minimal) documentation of that project.
