OK, the rumors are already FLOWING in about the Apple tablet. I’m putting the best news up on my Twitter Favorite’s feed, so you can see the latest photos from Engadget and the latest reports from pundits and others (some of whom claim that they have had the Apple Tablet for a few days now in order to be able to talk to the press about it).
But, no matter what, the Apple tablet will have a physical screen. Tonight, one company, Light Blue Optics (they are on Twitter too), visited my house and showed me a new screen that does not need a physical screen. It projects on any surface and even includes touch capabilities. How does it do that? In the video CTO Dr. Adrian Cable, explains how the technology works (it paints infrared light over the surface and a camera sees when your fingers disturb that curtain of light).
You really need to see this demoed. Take this three to five years out and you can see that we’re going to get some wild new computing experiences that can wrap around curved surfaces, or, even, display on your arm or wall.
