HP has unveiled its vision of the future in a travelling roadshow which offers a glimpse into the technologies we will be using in five years time.
At the centre of HP's dream is the Personal Wireless Hub, which is a device you carry around with you and is designed to connect all of your wireless activities -- from your home Internet connection to your mobile. It's part-Bluetooth headset/part-personal router, and will come as either a watch or some other small device you carry in your pocket.
The other devices on display all fed information from this hub and included lightweight tablets, foldable digital paper and even a coffee table that doubles as a display.
Phil Devlin, HP's Asia-Pacific product marketing manager for mobile systems, showcased the future technologies last week at Home nightclub in Sydney.
Paul Robson, group manager of product marketing for HP's personal systems group, opens the showcase with a look at HP's past inventions, including the first scientific calculator and the iPAQ.
Digital ink in a new form -- using a laser projector you are able to write directly on the tabletop, and the projector will display your maddened scribblings in laser form. All text will then be transmitted to your laptop or tablet.
