Monitors are SO last millennium. Even the super-sexy, ultra-thin OLED monitors have got nothing on Flyfire. This revolutionary (and still mostly theoretical) display technology from MIT could one day change the way we compute. The basic idea behind Flyfire is to use dozens of miniature helicopters festooned with LEDs to act as smart pixels.

These pixels are all controlled and coordinated by computer, which allows them to use highly precise movements to create detailed images. Eventually, MIT believes these tiny robots will be used to turn any area of space into a display surface. These 'helicopters' are self-stabilizing and use controlling technology developed in the ARES Lab.

Imagine. In the future, you'd clip a drone hub onto your ear or stick it into your pocket, and a cloud of tiny LED drones would act as your computer screen whenever you needed it. Sure, there are some practical issues, but none of them outweigh the 'cool factor' of having a swarm of robot minions act as your display.
