    How realistic is this?

    The haptic touch thing with the dongle looks awesome. Liking the projector idea too. Shame it's just a concept, but are the things shown realistic?

    Don't know about the tech itself but I think someone at Mozilla needs a cold shower...

    It's all community driven, nothing actually to do with mozilla tbh.

    Wow! That looks awesome- especially the projected keyboard. Not sure how feasible it is though...

    Well, projection keyboards are already available at retail, as are micro-projectors, so it's then just a question of fitting both of those techs into a PDA-sized device. Tricky, but not beyond the bounds of at least prototype hardware, I'd've thought. The problem at the minute would be battery life in a mobile device with two projectors.

    Nice to see that there's some element of innovation happening out there, even if it is just an evolutiuon of existing input methods. I wonder if we'll ever be able to move beyond variations on keyboard + mouse interaction...
