    Wouldn't it be neat if Microsoft could use their pixel sense technology for WP or even the Windows 8 tablets?
    I've seen what Surface could do with it, and I can imagine taking your phone out and scanning in business cards just by putting them into the screen. Idk. Just a vision I had last night. Any thoughts if they might do this in the future or if there are implications to using this technology on mobile devices?

    I think that the technology is out of this world but the equipment needed to run that stuff is probably huge. That's why you only see it built into a coffee table sized platform, a counter top or inside a wall to house all of that stuff needed for it to run effectively. That's just a guess from watching all the videos. I don't even think that technology will be implemented on tablets/laptops for at least another 5yrs to be honest.

    I had a vision of something similar myself not too long ago. Imagine listening to Sports talk on the radio of your car and when you get out just tap the phone to the headunit and the station, podcast or whatever you're listening to was transferred to your phone. Imagine tapping your phone to your Zune HD and have the music and pics just transfer to your phone. Kinda the same concept with the Touchpad and pre 3 demo but better.

    Pixel Sense is getting miniaturize and lowering its cost at a pretty slow rate. Probably it'll be several more years to get it down to paperthin sheet before it can be applied to smartphone screens.

    I agree it would be very cool though.
