A pen that may point to the future

Miniature computer reportedly developed in Japan

Big Marketing for Small Business

We fully admit to having precious little information about this item, but the photo alone is simply too good to resist. According to a blog called Big Marketing for Small Business, "A revolutionary new miniature computer is being worked on in Japan that comes in the shape of a pen that you can slip in to your pocket." It's especially interesting given that the whole concept of "pen computing" became something of a laughingstock years ago, at least until the PDA stylus came along.

This pen-sized device supposedly projects a virtual keyboard and screen, recogizing your typing and commands via Bluetooth. As Plastic Bamboo notes, it's probably just a concept (and not a hoax, we hope). Even so, we can dream, can't we?
