That would be completely awesome to have! Although, I can see my kids and/or dogs destroying it in the first week.

It would be even more awesome if there was a built in cooler and it served you the "beverage" (beer) of your choice! *lol

*drool* I agree. Especially if it launches the beer can into the air like R2 did with Luke's light sabre in Jedi. :thumbsup:





:shock: Ooo. Did I just sound like a dork there?

Just last weekend my grandpa was telling me of this new projector that is about to hit the market and is made right here in the USA. It is no larger than a pack of cigarettes and uses lasers to project the image onto the surface. Because of the lasers, it never has to be focused and there are no lightbulbs to replace and it can even be used in areas with less than ideal (bright) lighting.

That could be the one, I think he said he read about it in a magazine and I know he gets popular science. Can you imagine how handy that will be for the traveling person? One of those, and one of the cute little sony laptops or a macbook air, it reminds me of those microsoft pda commercials where the guy goes on a business trip with no luggage and only his smart phone.
