Prabhakar, Cell phone companies have been showing projectors since 2009 so that's an easy feature to add to a tablet, of course the immediate challenge is battery life with such a feature. I'm on my keyboard constantly and therefore am not attracted to a tablet even with a portable keyboard because then it's a 'wanna-be' laptop.

One of the limitations of a tablet as I see it, is its limited screen size. If someone can develop a tablet which is like a miniature hand held projector then the image can be focused on any size viewable screen, wall or paper and that will increase its application areas many fold

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
