Android Wear will soon be buzzing our wrists numb with notifications, but what else can you do on such tiny screens? An app called Attopedia is testing those limits by letting you browse Wikipedia on your smartwatch. The logic is that mobile phone screens weren't great for browsing either until sites were designed for them, so why not take it down even further? After loading a page, the grid interface lets you use your watch's tactile screen to scroll up or down to access menus and left or right to see more detail. We're not sure it's the best way to view a content-saturated site like Wikipedia, but it's a pretty good test for Android Wear -- it'll have to be more than a one-trick pony to take off. Grab it here if you've got an Android Wear device, you early adopter you.
