Laptop with no screen
With the lack of fanfare surrounding Apple’s announcement of the new iPad touch screen tablet, consumers are continuing their restless feeling as they seek innovation (which Benn forecasts they will not find).
In steps innovation
“Using laser-based projection technology, one of those “phase modulating spatial light modulators” and other tech tucked into a tiny box, this computer by a UK company called Light Blue Optics projects a touch screen on any surface with relatively low power. The company’s co-founder, Dr. Adrian Cable, visited gadget geek Robert Scoble yesterday at his house, leading to a homemade, touch-heavy video with a gently voiced cameraman that might be best be called softcore amateur future gadget porn.
For those preparing for the “magical” iPad to revolutionize and game change, there is more out there than the giant iPhone that has great application but is far from innovative. We’ll see apps change this year to adapt to the iPad release, as they should, but there is so much more to look forward to (FINALLY!!!). We don’t know the release date, but this is a sign that there just might be hope in this world for the geeks at heart!
You can watch the whole video below, or here’s the part that will make you drool (and angry that you carry a laptop or have a computer instead of a projected touch screen that loves mother earth more than Apple):
So what now?
So what do you think of the projected touch screen technology? Think it will change computing forever or will it be a fading fad?
