Pen PC - The Future of Computers

Personal computer in a pen?

You will not be able to know what's ahead of you, until you have seen at least 4 pictures and read the explanation of what they are. Our future is here, incredible! What an age we live in? Now take a peak...

Are these pens?

It seems that these are pictures of several pens in the pencil holder. Now take a closer look...

 Pens with Cameras?

No way to conclude that you are actually looking at the computer. And a little transformation would result to this.

In the revolution of miniature computers, scientists have made great development with bluetooth technology. This is the forthcoming computers you can carry within your pockets.

Here's how it works:

The Pen PC has rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery and contains a tubular holographic storage device capable of storing terabytes of data, far exceeding the capacity of today's hard disks. A docking stand holds the pen pc in place. Using lasers and infrared technology, the PEN PC projects a screen on the wall.

It also projects a full-size keyboard onto any flat surface from where you can carry out functions you would normally do on your desktop computer. As you type on the laser projection, it analyzes what you're typing by the coordinates of that location. The virtual keyboard can be customized to any size, configured with additional keys + virtual touchpad.  The virtual keyboard is already in the market for certain cell phones and PDAs.


Can anyone say, "Good-bye laptops!" Lookslike our computers are out of date... again!!!

  1. The concept looks impossible but then I think could With the way people are thinking about the future technology, there could be a big possibility they might able to apply it.

  2. I think that the analysis of coordinates of the keyboard is inaccurate and might lead to many unwanted steps. I advice you to place 2 cameras to analyze such coordinates instead of one camera.
    Thus, one camera would analyze the coordinates, the other would be at the bottom of the pen to precise whether the user touched the keyboard surface or not.
