Forget Tablets, Here is the Future

Out beyond ideas right and wrong, there is a field. I will meet you there.

- Rumi, Persian poet

Out beyond tablets and touchscreens, there is a wonderful place. Please, take me there.

- Tom, guy

The technology thinker, blogger, videographer and polymath of the digital age, Robert Scoble, made a video of a demo of the funkiest new technology I have seen in a while. Sure, it doesn't cure cancer or restore hope to Haitians like Apple's upcoming product. But not every gadget is plucked directly from a mystical pool of divine water by the Lady of the Lake, so don't get your hopes up. In the meantime, to tide you over until Nerd Christmas begins in about 7 hours, this is pretty cool.
