Good question.  How will the device know which brain to obey.  I guess it needs to be like blue tooth and you pair your brain with the device.

There's a lot of work on brian interfaces out there. Not sure how much is snake oil. Anyone got some good pointers?

@daleste, exactly the same thoughts were running through my mind. If devices can directly take inputs from brains that will be the next revolution. It would be interesting to explore how would the device know whose brain to be sensed and prioritized, if there are many humans in the vicinity. Ensuring safety and security will also be a interesting.

The ultimate is that some day our devices will get our input directly from our brains.  No more typing.  We already have software that will take verbal input and even eye movements for the impared.  Someday we will just think of what we want to input and it will happen.

Chips used for connectivity is actually of Fingertip Size

Chips used for connectivity is actually of Fingertip Size, the associated electronics and space to host protocol stakes makes it a Fingertop Sized system. And I think it will take much time to become a fingertip size system of IoT.

I think that is so very interesting and fascinating. I would love to try it on my fingertips. Somedays back when I got a tablet cum smartphone I was thinking how wonderful if information can be got from the fingertips itself instead opening so many gadgets. Also like the idea of uasing solar energy. That is so much untapped market and so much can be done if supported well.

I agree.  No tactile feedback makes it hard to type and know which buttons you have pushed.  For the foldable display, I think the future is to have the display in your glasses or maybe implanted in your eye or brain.

I don't realy like the projected ones. Your hands block the projection and it just ends up feeling weird.

@Caleb: I'd love to be able to fold down a 10 inch screen to a tablet for walking around, then unfold and dock for full laptop experience.

What about those things that project a keyboard onto the tabletop and then use motion tracking to work out which virtual keys you are pressing? How long do you think it will be before tablets have this capability built in?

No longer will we be able to say "the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing" -- the combination of accelerometers on your fingers and the IoT means the entire world will know where you are doing with the little rascals...
