HP's Sprout is an all-in-one touchscreen PC that runs Windows 8.1 and projects a touchscreen to your desk. Crazy. This is possible because it has a downward-facing 3-D scanner/camera/projector. Sprout also has specific apps to cater to this specific feature. To visualize this, I highly suggest watching the attached video! This actually looks really cool, if I had the extra money I would buy it. I just don't know if I like the idea of a touch keyboard...

This almost looks like a toy haha. Interesting concept...I don't think I'd use it
@csgeek yeah! it feels like one of those leap pads or something. I think it is the way they are advertising it. The colors they chose....and the fact that it is focusing on the arts. It's definitely geared towards a certain demographic
