    The future of tablets

    An interesting concept and not so far fetched:

    A recently published patent application, that happens to list Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos as an inventor, describes a device similar to tablets that is essentially just a remote display.

    Imagine a tablet, but then you rip out all of its guttyworks battery, processor, etc. and leave the Retina-class display. What do you have? Perhaps the future of tablets, if this patent application ever becomes reality, at least. The tablet would work with the help of you guessed it cloud computing. A central box would handle all of the processing and beam it over to the device, and more amazingly, would also wirelessly power the device. (See: How wireless charging works.)

    Taking the classroom example given, you could easily extrapolate that to the home or any office environment.
