Instead of spending hours unravelling, testing and hanging Christmas lights, in the future I'm going to do what New York's Saks Fifth Avenue has done with their holiday decorations; hire a bunch of animators and just point a projector at my home.
Unless you're using a Bluetooth headset or their speakerphone, you can't really operate a touchscreen smartphone while it's held to your ear during a call. So this prototype once again merges a phone with a pico projector to give you full access to your device during a call, as well as the device of the person you're talking to.
We've lamented that handheld projectors aren't quite worth toting around just yet. But that could soon change if Disney's research wing manages to get their SideBySide interactive projectors past the prototype stage.
There are already plenty of reason why you wouldn't own a TV, especially if you stream to your iDevice regularly. The Epson MegaPlex MG-850HD projector lets you give your iPad the big screen treatment in your living room.
