 "Comdex 2000 saw an increased interest in mobile computing and wireless
 communications as well as an enthusiastic reception among Xybernaut's
 strategic partners, including Texas Instruments, IBM, Toshiba, and others,"
 noted Tod R. Rehm, President and COO of Xybernaut.  "We're seeing wearable
 computing starting to move from the initial stages of pilot projects to the
 potential of expanded organization-wide implementation among our customers,
 including Bell Canada, who reported at Xybernaut's Comdex VIP event that the
 initial results of the pilot were going well."
     At Comdex 2000, Xybernaut hosted this VIP special event at the MGM Grand
 specifically for press/media, senior management of Xybernaut's key customers,
 strategic partners, and selected guests which also featured the introduction
 of the new MA IV TC and sunlight-readable displays, and comments from several
 guest speakers on the tremendous strength of the market and of Xybernaut's
 leadership position in that market.
     George Tatomyr, of IBM Corp., stated that "We believe that 2001 is the
 kickoff point for wearable PC prominence in the mobile marketplace.  We are
 excited about our relationship with Xybernaut and things are moving extremely
 well between our two companies."
     "We're very excited about the possibilities and potential of mobile
 wearable computing at Bell Canada," stated Brad Chitty, the driving force
 behind mobile wearable computers and the ongoing, successful pilot project for
 Bell Canada.  "One of the most promising aspects of the technology is that it
 allows us to invest in our people."
     "Wireless and wearables are an unbeatable combination," noted Peter Keen,
 who has been chosen by Infoworld as one of the top 10 IT consultants in the
 U.S.  "For me, perhaps the most important current component of the integration
 of wireless into the enterprise platform is the mobile wearable computer."
     Ken Stabler, currently a successful businessman and former pro quarterback
 who won Super Bowl XI while with the NFL Oakland Raiders and was named NFL
 "Player of the Year," among other notable achievements, stated that "I can
 feel the focus, the excitement, and the energy among the Xybernaut team.  I am
 as excited about the prospects for this company as they are."
     Texas Instruments and Xybernaut also demonstrated enhanced speech
 recognition using Texas Instruments' "state-of-the-art" Digital Signal
 Processor ("DSP") running on Xybernaut's Mobile Assistant(R) IV (MA IV(R)).
 This combination represents an exciting first step toward Xybernaut's expanded
 use of DSPs to create truly speech-concentric wearable PCs, and with the
 potential of considerable additional capabilities for future applications.
