The prototype tablet should have the ability to project a virtual keyboard

This year’s CES was inundated with tablets, but none were as audacious as the working concept tablet from MSI. Alongside the more traditional MSI WindPad 100A, the company demonstrated a special tablet with a built-in pico projector housed on top of the unit. The projector was allowed to swivel, and may give way to unique possibilities in the future such as screen projection on a nearby wall or facing down towards a desk. Perhaps most surprising was its ability to project a virtual touch-sensitive keyboard on the desk for the user to type on, which has potential to boost usability and flexibility of the device.

Specifications of the concept tablet are not well known other than its 10-inch screen, Intel Atom processor, and preloaded Windows 7. Unfortunately, MSI is uncertain of the consumer audience that such a tablet would be geared towards and so the device is still in its testing and assessment phase. The name of the tablet, yet alone the cost, remains to be seen.
