Just needs to be in 3D and I'm one step closer to having my very own Omni-Tool like in Mass Effect 2.

so, it uses a sensor array to pick up the vibrations made by pushing the buttons with your finger right...
Imagine how hillarious it could be to try to watch someone use one of these while it's raining, or while it's really windy, or you are driving and hit a bump and it goes haywire and thinks they tried to hit a button.  I like the idea, but there are SO many cases where it just isn't going to work as expected I'm guessing.

The catchphrase for this will be "Skinput -just touch yourself".

 Thanks, but no thanks. Big pass on any chips inserted in me.

 "but don't worry, it doesn't require any surgery or limb replacements"

You didn't read did you... Nothing is injected, surgically inserted, etc. It's a projector and a wrist band you wear.

Actually, I did read. But I doubt that many people will go for it as is. The technology behind it will get smaller and smaller. Major milestone will be when you can wear it as a wristwatch. Next milestone will be under your skin where it will back-project. You see, my personal philosophy is in life, you have to see where the road is going so you know when to switch lanes.

 Look too far ahead down that road, and you'll miss what's infront of you right now!

Brings a whole new meaning to 'pushing someone's buttons'.  Lol.

Yea, as soon as that gigantic clunky device on his arm goes away.
