HP’s Misto PC/coffee table allows family members to gather in the living room to watch movies, view photos or play games.
A desktop PC fits into the coffee table with standard USB and DVD drives available for loading pictures or software onto Misto.
Several people can work on a puzzle using Misto, but it still can’t let multiple people move pieces of the puzzle simultaneously.
HP Labs Director Dick Lampman says Hewlett-Packard’s investments in research and development must further existing products and create new ones.
The sunglasses used in HP’s Casual Capture project have a tiny camera mounted between the two eyepieces. It can record a day in the eyes of the wearer.
