Remember Microsoft's crazy Surface technology that turns a coffee table into a high-tech touch-screen computer? Well, that same concept is now making its way to the mobile world in a way that is quite unexpected.
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.
A video of the intriguing concept technology is available on YouTube.
