I'd still argue that large peripherals and augmented displays are the way to
go if you seek good productivity levels. Input can probably be replaced by
voice recognition (still needs stronger-yet-small CPU's); displays can
possibly be replaced by head-mounted displays that makes full use of the
entire field of vision; lastly, high-bandwidth connections seem to be little
of a hindrance at the moment. If you get a mouse-like device (glove or
gyro-devices), then you could even surf the Web, write messages and play
games while waking up and down the street. Fascinating yet worrisome effect
on humanity...

Best wishes,
