The iPad better watch its back. According to an article on Motherboard, a U.K.-based company has developed the portable computer for the future: a laptop without a screen.
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.Though eager consumers won't be able to get their hands on the computer for a few years (the company is still working out a marketing plan), the video demonstration is a cool sneak peek into the future of personal laptops. Head over to Motherboard to check out the full video and, to the tech enthusiasts out there, please be careful not to drool on your bulky laptop. People will stare.Photo via Motherboard.
