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.

Seabird would use projectors to expand user input and interaction.

At this point, Mozilla is only sharing ideas. It has no plans to manufacture the Seabird.
