    Look closely, do you see what i see :)

    http://pc.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/2004/0119/sony.htm

    i cant read anything on this page, but i do see some pics that look really nice.

    I got the link from a site, talking about Sonys new airboard tech, that basicly is a 12in LCD w touchscreen and its wireless. If you look close in the pics you'll see what looks like a 7in version next to a box of Marlboro.

    This would be nice in the car.

    It seems though, (still not sure) that it dosent connect to your pc, i think its a TV. Still not sure.

    microsoft tried implementing a similar concept a few years back, but for all that bling for something that many people considered a novelty, it didn't fly.

    english explanation:
    Tokyo: Slated to hit the market on March 12 from Sony (TSE: 6758), the Airboard LF-X1 portable personal broadband LCD TV system can be carried around virtually anywhere on the globe.

    Consisting of a 12.1-inch wireless LCD monitor and a base station, the Dual Hi-Bit Wireless-compatible system supports both 5GHz IEEE802.11a and 2.4GHz IEEE802.11b/g broadband wireless connectivity. Users can remotely access the base station connected to a TV or a DVD recorder to enjoy TV programs and recorded video in real time.

    I think that View Sonic made one of these about a year ago too, i think it had a docking station you could pick it up and use it while you were on the crapper. A pretty cool concept, it wasn't touch screen tho it used a pen so it was basically an oversized PDA running windows.

    not sure if thats what is pictured, but a few months ago I heard of a new wireless spec coming out in the future that would support a distance of 100km, the only problem was that it demanded far too much power to put in a laptop at the time.........maybe they worked some of those issues out?
