We've been introduced to virtual-keyboards - the ones that are projected onto a flat surface. This computer prototype utilizes the same technology but also includes a projected monitor. All you apparently need is this pen-like gizmo and you've got yourself an entire PC. This gives the term pocket PC a new meaning.

Implications - The rise in mobile technology has created a consumer base that craves to be productive wherever they happen to be. This has inspired tech companies to rethink the concept of the desktop PC in favor of computing devices with a much smaller footprint. Projection technology can turn any flat surface into a workspace, which appeals to commuters, frequent travelers and those who work from home. Stats for Projected Monitors Trending: Older & Mild
