The "Office of Real Soon Now" is an ongoing experiment to see what it's like to use large-screen projection as our only computer display. We say "Real Soon Now" to contrast our experiment with the "Office of the Future", a project at the University of North Carolina that's building a much more sophisticated, laboratory-based environment in which multiple projectors seamlessly blend to display on most of the office surfaces. Our systems aren't nearly that fancy. Our idea was to experiment with systems we could build and operate within days. In our "Real Soon Now" offices, we use large-screen projection instead of conventional monitors. We've been using these systems for more than a year, and we'll never go back.
