At this week's Microsoft TechFest event, the company is showing off a project called "Mobile Surface," which requires a mobile phone to be hooked up to a camera and a projector.
Once the video is projected, users will be able to move their hands around and recording gestures. It is all powered by the phone, while the projector idea gives it a bigger and more wide-reaching applications.
One other part about the demonstration is that Microsoft is teasing the idea of including projectors onto phones themselves, a concept that has not really gained much traction before.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
