Pen Computer

Invented by NEC Corp and NEC Design Ltd. with the prototype cost of $30,000, the future of computers can possibly be re-shaped. The concept entails the integration of a computer into a pen. NEC designers call it a “Pen-style Personal Networking Gadget Package.”

P-ISM is a “pen-computer” package including five functions: a pen-style cellular phone with a handwriting data input, virtual keyboard, a very small projector, camera scanner, and personal ID key with cashless pass function. P-ISMs are connected with one another through short-range wireless technology. The whole set is also connected to the Internet through the cellular phone function. This personal gadget in a minimalist pen style enables the ultimate ubiquitous computing.

This news has been out for a couple years now, but it is fascinating and I could not resist reposting it:
