This paper studies the requirements for a truly wearable augmented-reality (AR) terminal. The requirements translate into a generic hardware architecture consisting of programmable modules communicating through a central interconnect. Careful selection of low-power components shows that it is feasible to construct an AR terminal that weighs about 2~kg and roughly dissipates 26~W. With state-of-the-art batteries and a 50% average resource utilization, the terminal can operate for about 10 hours.
