We have seen the future, and it’s cell phones equipped with mini-projectors. Samsung has filed a patent for a virtual screen input device to be integrated into mobile handsets. The projected image will let users input data via an electronic pen — sensors will detect the pen’s position and characters drawn.

From the article: “That projected screen will have its own interface using a notebook paradigm, with areas for text and drawing input, along with a menu bar and scrolling capability.”
