Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "The first computers were gigantic, filling rooms and requiring constant care and maintenance. [...] The computer stayed on the desk until the laptop computer, a smaller, more portable, but just as powerful machine, made it nearly obsolete. And then, the iPhone was released, followed shortly after by Android and the Palm WebOS, and the next step in computing was clear. What we did not immediately understand was if mobile computing was an accessory, or a replacement, for the traditional desktop machines." Jon-Buys at Ostatic believes the phone-becomes-computer paradigm is the next step.

Same general idea, your cpu & storage is always with you and is adaptable to the best input/out put mechanisms at hand, whatever you define those to be.

But,would you really enjoy the lack of feedback a laser displayed keyboard would provide? I'm a touch typist, I don't need the letters to actually be ledigble on a keyboard as I never look at them while typing. I think its a terrible idea. Give me a real keyboard anyday. I don't care if its a projector, LCD, Plasma, CRT, or E-ink as long as the display is crisp, readable and sufficiently large enough for me to work.
