HP Sprout – Goodbye Keyboard and Mouse
The future is here people. HP are killing off the keyboard and mouse with their new Sprout PC. The unit has been the stuff of science fiction and research for ages now, and it seems HP have decided now is the time to move forward with the revolutionary new design.
As mentioned no keyboard or mouse, but a camera watching over an interactive surface at the base of the monitor. It allows the rendering of traditional touch screens and touch screen elements like on screen keyboards, but also allows much more interaction with 2D and 3D objects. Words dont nearly do enough justice on this awesome piece of kit, so check out the video and their site.
