  • 1. The Future of Computers
    By: Skyler Wynn
  • 2. Where is the future of computers going to take us?
    Hands free
    More secure
    Easier to use
  • 3. Areas of Emphasis
    Holographic Technologies
    i.Tech Virtual Keyboard
    E-Ball
    Holographic Storage Data
    Blu-Ray
    Biometrics
    Fingerprints
    Irises
    Surface Technologies
    Multi-Touch
    Microsoft Surface
  • 4. i.Tech Virtual Keyboard
    Works with PDAs, Smartphones, PCs & laptops
    Bluetooth-enabled
    Projects holographic keyboard on flat surface
  • 5. i.Tech Virtual Keyboard cont.
    Dimensions are 9 cm x 3.5 cm x 2.5 cm
    Ultra-portable with 120 min. continuous typing time
    Has added sound effects to make holographic keyboard feel as real as possible
  • 6. E-Ball
    Created by ApostolTnokopvski
    Smallest PC ever made
    160 mm round sphere
  • 7. E-Ball cont.
    Components:
    i.Tech Virtual Keyboard
    Dual Core Processor
    2 GB ram
    250- 500 GB hardrive
    Integrated graphics and sound card
    HD- DVD recorder
    2 x 50 watt speakers
    Wireless optical mouse
    LAN & WAN card
    Modem
    Web cam
    LCD projector
    Paper Holder
    Microsoft Windows
  • 8. E-Ball cont.
  • 9. Holographic Storage Data
    a technique that takes crystals or photopolymers and stores information inside them at a high density
    Included in most electronic devices
    Spatial Light Modulators can produce about 1000 different images a second at 1024 x 1024-bit resolution = 1 gigabit per second write speed
  • 10. Holographic Storage Data: Blu-Ray
    25 GB on single-layer disc
    50 GB on dual-layer disc
    Uses blue-violet lasers to read and write data which has a shorter wavelength allowing more data to be pack more tightly in less space
    Supported by 200 of the world’s leading consumers in PCs, recording media, video games and music
  • 11. Biometrics
    study of unchanging measurable biological characteristics that are unique to each individual
    Uses:
    verify a person’s identity
    allow or limit access to things such as computer documents
    access to certain areas of a building, and border crossings
    Two types:
    Fingerprints
    Irises
  • 12. Biometrics: Fingerprints
    Used to identify person
    No two people have same fingerprints
    Used mainly in allowing or limiting access
    Contain ridges and valleys & a livescan device or reader reads or photographs the difference between the two
    By rolling or touching the finger onto a sensing area the fingerprint is captured with sensors
    technique in the works that allows fingerprints to be retrieved without leaving material that could be used in DNA analysis called SKP fingerprinting
  • 13. Biometrics: Irises
    colored ring around the pupil of the
    no two irises are alike
    amount of light that enters the eye is regulated by this muscle
    software takes a picture of the iris and recreates picture into an encrypted digital image
    No contact or lighting
    Not effected by glasses or contacts
    can work from a couple cm to a
    few meters away
  • 14. Surface Technologies
    Multi-touch
    Gives computer users & mobile devices the ability to interact and control a graphical user interface with one finger on either the application level or the system level
    Contains touch screen & software that recognizes multiple simultaneous touch points
  • 15. Surface Technologies cont.
    Microsoft Surface
    Multi-touch
    Large, horizontal, 30 in. display monitor
    no keyboard or mouse; just grab and move
    interaction with digital content by responding to hand gestures and real-world objects; object recognition
    Multi-user experience; more than one person at a time can use
    Move info. Between devices
    Can use more than one thing on screen at a time
  • 16. Conclusion
    Future of computers is steadily growing fast
    The size how, we use them, and there ease of use is changing
    Security is a lot better
    Video quality is better
    Storage is at a higher capacity
