Technology has been shrinking by the day and we now expect to carry everything in our pockets. This has been made possible partly due to rapid advancements in mobile hardware technology that enable our mobile devices to carry more while getting smaller, and partly due to the advent of emerging technologies such as cloud computing which utilize the increasing power of data transmission rates. Even though 3G is still in nascent stages of effective implementation right now, the attention has already turned to 4G-the next generation of mobile communications.
An integration of several electronic devices into one easy-to-carry device lies at the root of this desire to shrink technology to the extent that it fits in our pockets. Whatever it happens to be- small sized documents, medium sized pictures or even large sized movies- we expect to carry everything with us all the time. One glaring problem in making our devices smaller is the dilemma of having a bigger display, while making everything else slimmer. Necessity is the driving force behind innovation and the time is not far when we will see devices that project our display on all kinds of surfaces without compromising on the quality of the image.
