Tech conference offers what's next

A television sewn into your shirt sleeve. A dashboard screen to monitor the kids in the back seat. A 3-D computer monitor sharp enough to make a hardcore gamer's heart stop -- or help a surgeon start one. The gizmo-packed exhibition hall at the Society for Information Display's international symposium offers a tantalizing vision of what's to come.

This week's meeting was all about extremes -- monitors that are very big or very small, very thin, very light and very, very high-resolution. Another big focus: making the cutting-edge technology very low cost. While some tech enthusiasts are willing to shell out thousands of dollars for the next new thing, whether and how soon more mainstream versions of these gadgets will appear in your living rooms -- or even clothing -- will depend largely on the price.
