  • Mozilla’s Concept Series, a fine example of crowdsourcing, has hatched an idea for a smartphone - Seabird. The Seabird is designed to eradicate a few “frustrating physical interactions” by tossing in motion capture and projected keyboards. With this projector, the Seabird could function as a netbook. Larry Dignan has more in his blog.

  • The phone would create a virtual keyboard and trackpad for better typing.

    If it was even just a PDA type device with wifi and decent storage, I'd want one.

  • So, basically...

    ...this is an article about something we'll never see.

    How valuable.

    Wow, that's amazing, I'm sad I'll never be able to get one.

  • not far-fetched

    Sure we will probably never see this exact thing, but I guarantee in 15 years we will see things that hold the same features. Projected keyboard, already got one. Mini projectors, already got them too. You ARE looking at the future of computing

  • If we can solve electricity storage problem....

    This is likely to be future. Certainly mobile phones will hold power of entire PC and mobile workforce will be able to use their phone for serious computing work by using virtual keyboard and projector.

    But million dollar question is about battery power. Currently battery power is biggest issue with our mobile phones. As our demand from phone increases, it will need more power to meet that demand. Certainly without serious innovation in electricity storage, these devices will be limited all the time.
