Japanese technology that turns paper into a touchscreen

A Japanese company, Fujitsu, has developed a technology that is able to detect what your fingers touch in the real world and is able to turn any surface into a touchscreen.

As you can see in the video below, one can interact with information that is on the piece of paper by using only fingers and gestures. Plus, it is also capable of working on a curved or uneven surfaces.

Spokesperson from Fujitsu said that the technology consists of a webcam, a projector and a sophisticated image processing algorithm. 

This technology is however, still at the prototype phase but Fujitsu is planning to develop a commercial version somewhere around 2014.
