I thought this was pretty cute...

Who knew back in '77 that we'd get to a projected virtual computer keyboard from a mini-R2-D2 by 2015?  No Canadian release though, only US.

The Amazing Kreskin?


It's a very cool idea but I'm not sure about the ergonomics of it, maybe you would get used to it.

Kreskin!  Now there's a name I haven't heard in a long time... the guy was practically a Force-user back in the day, will he collapse into a pile of empty clothes when he passes away, maybe!  :)

I'm not too keen on the virtual keyboard thing myself but that seems to be the slow trend (I just saw a news story last week on those virtual keyboards you can project onto your forearm from a wrist device).
