I remember PCgamer putting up a similar format, and actually a review for the projected keyboard, which they more or less dismissed as 'a gimic'.

As for pen-based PCs, tablet laptops have been around for a very long time. Besides saving space and having it look snazzy and futuristic, I can't really see any real improvement surrounding these 'breakthroughs'.

Still, anything to get Star Wars style chess in play I suppose...
Just in case people were wondering, it stands for 'At The Convenience Of The Experimenter.'

And now... this!

sounds like some interesting technology could come out of these development.  But i dont know how effective the whole system would be. I can see why Japanese buisiness  men would be interested...but it all seems a tad gimicey to me.
