 From my shared reader...
This is right out of Transmetropolitan, the latest MS vision of 2019,
and tons of other stuff.

The hand phone is incredible.

[Pattie Maes] from MIT’s Media Lab showed a really interesting
augmented reality demo at TED this year. It’s a wearable projector that
lets you interact with any surface. A camera tracks the gestures your
fingertips make and performs related actions. She shows several uses:
projecting a dial pad on your hand, displaying additional info on a
product you’re holding, and taking a picture when you form a frame with
your hands. The current equipment cost is $350, but that would be
reduced in a dedicated device.
