File this under cool shit we probably won't see for a long time. Apple just recently filed filed an expanded patent application for a system that would detect hand/head motion around a computer and let you manipulate projected image controls.
They're calling it a 3D laser display, but I see all my holographic dreams being projected without a screen in mid-air. Now if we could only stuff it into an R2 unit.
