Methanol Internet Viewer from Toshiba

We're often reminded how close we are to the "future" when you least expect it. Just have a look at this Internet Viewer from Toshiba.

Besides looking like a futuristic MID, the most impressive part isn't its style but the time it can stand away from a power outlet.

Thanks to its DMFC (Direct Methanol Fuel Cell) technology, you can use one of these for about a week at a time on each methanol recharge.

And as you can see in the video, this is a real working unit - which makes us believe we can actually see one of these out in the streets sooner than we might expect. (Lets hope so!)
