A laptop straight out of <i>Minority Report</i>

The Zoom design concept would use holographic technology to create a touch-panel laptop.

Well, not literally. But the VAIO Zoom concept laptop looks like it could be part of John Anderton's arsenal of tech tools. Composed of two sheets of thin glass hinged together, the Zoom relies on holographic technology for both the screen and the input devices. When the laptop is turned off, the screen becomes completely transparent and the keyboard opaque.

Being technology critics, we have to wonder: Where's the power source? What are the components? How comfortable can it be to type on a flat panel? Can an object made entirely of glass be all that portable?

But then we remind ourselves to relax--it's just a concept, something pretty to populate our dreams of the future.
