In a video presentation (above), we see how one can manipulate data on a piece of paper: by using finger gestures, you can copy an image or a text excerpt and store it into memory.
Besides flat surfaces, the technology also works on curved or uneven ones, so one can easily manipulate data from a book.
Though the technology is still at the "demonstration level," researchers at Fujitsu plan to develop a commercial version of the system by fiscal 2014.
Check out the video above and tell us how'd you use this technology in the comments.

We're quickly getting used to the fact that computer, smartphone and tablet screens are meant to be touched — but what about paper?
Fujitsu has developed a technology that detects objects your finger is touching in the real world, effectively turning any surface — a piece of paper, for example — into a touchscreen, DigInfo reports.
"This system doesn't use any special hardware; it consists of just a device like an ordinary webcam, plus a commercial projector. Its capabilities are achieved by image processing technology," explains Taichi Murase, a researcher at Fujitsu's Media Service System Lab.
