Interesting device. One hopes this does not send all our desktops even
more into the made for touchscreen kinds of things. Maybe it will instead
open the small touchscreen devices back up towards full desktop kinds of
use. (full screen apps annoy me) A tablet could have such a device built
into it, a small laser device could project a control interface onto any
surface, keyboard (text or music with multi manuals) a mixer, wave
editor... of course these things could also be done on the main screen..
but I am thinking the wrist angle for some common tasks would be better on
a horizontal surface. A 3D/holographic display is what is needed to
complete this gadget.

The small tablet/smartphone devices suffer from low screen real estate and
so buttons must be big to get touch info accurately, This device could
allow for a much bigger space to be used even on a small screen and
smaller buttons.

How open is the driver? "SDK for Windows 7 and 8, Mac OSX 10.7 and higher,
and Ubuntu Linux 12.04 LTS and Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail" sounds like
not open to me.
