Bluetooth earpieces allow people to talk on cell phones without an actual cell phone being visible. I propose something similar for text messaging. Transparent thimble-like devices worn on the fingers project a hologram where your cell phone would normally be, and allow one to type without the use
of a physical touchpad.
Sent and received messages will be projected in red laser light directly onto the palms from a small receiver worn on the chest.
The result? Everyone will be walking around tapping their thumbs - on nothing.
Reminds me of this one...

||My cellphone would normally be in my pocket. I need to wear a laser on my chest? Thanks, but I think I'll stick with my old school $20 dumb phone.
||My boss perpetually sends me texts via his smart phone speech-to-text gadget - I'm amused by the idea of him wearing a laser and thimbles, but I'd wind up having to debug it for him periodically.
||ah [nz] but think of the Dilbert points you'd accrue if you managed to convince him that he'd have to defoliate his chest to get it to work right.
