Remember when computers were so big that you almost needed two desks – one for the screen and one for everything else? It is almost unbelievable to think that you can now do everything from a tablet or even smartphone. Well, its time to expand your horizons once again – Apple has now taken computers one step further with its latest patent.

Get ready to visualize – U.S. Patent No. 8,610,726 is “Computer systems and methods with projected display,” according to Apple Insider. The new patent describes a featureless computer box that has been dubbed a “desk-free computer,” with a laser projector. The built-in laser projector system can produce up to a 40-inch image from as little as 15-inches away.

The “desk-free computer” connects to all accessories wirelessly – even its charger, making it the most portable computer out there. The fact that this computer uses a laser projector also means that it will never require the expensive bulb replacements that LCD or DLP projectors do.
