Physical Virtual Sample Based Touch Screen Musical Interface
This video has a table top screen (either an LCD or a projector from below) which they call a tangible musical instrument. Basically you drop blocks on it and the interface detects the function or sample of a block. The sample or function plays a sound or modifies the surrounding blocks. It's a half virtual half physical sample studio.

Couple People Drill Through A Working Laptop LCD
Couple people use a drill to drill a hole in the center of a working laptop LCD screen. As the LCD screen slowly loses integrity from the center outwards the edges of the screen continue to work. For the first 20-30 seconds or so the drill does nothing.

Microsoft Prototype Interface Ala Minority Report In This Video
Here's a prototype screen interface from Microsoft which was demoed at the CEBIT 2006 conference. It's very similar to the interface from the movie Minority Report. I believe they are using a rear projector (though it's possible they are using an LCD). Basically there is a piece of glass with the display on it and then behind the glass is a motion sensor which tracks the user movements (I believe). There is either an LCD sandwiched in between two pieces of glass or a rear projector. I also think this is the interface that Robert Scoble talks about in this interview.

Philips Booth Demonstrates Light Up Fabric At A Tradeshow In This Video
Here's a video from what looks like some kind of tradeshow at the Philips booth where they demonstrate light emitting fabric called lumalive. They have people wearing t-shirts with moving light animations on them, chairs with moving light images in the backs of them, and a couch with the back filled with light moving icons. The video is pretty light on technical details however. As far as I can tell the tshirts look pretty bulky (somewhat like a bulletproof vest). The back of the chair though looks pretty good and the woman even presses in on the light area to show that it isn't just a flat light emitting surface. I'm guess it's either embedded LEDs, electroluminescence, or a flexable LCD.

Build A Do It Yourself LCD Wall Projector In This Video For Around $100
In this video they show you how to make a wall projector out of an old LCD and one of those overhead projectors. The video shows the guy taking an LCD monitor apart and removing the LCD itself from the case. He then places the LCD on top of the overhead projector projection area and tapes it down on the sides. Additionally he adds one small computer fan to the side to keep it cool (though I'm not sure how much good that tiny fan is doing). The end result is what looks like about a 100 inch screen projection on the wall. The whole setup can probably be completed in under $100.

Alternative Computer Interface Using Data Tiles Which Widget Togather
This video is apparently of a prototype device that Sony is working on called 'Data Tiles' or some such. There is an oval with a LCD in the center of it and the LCD is split up into 12 tiles (four across and three down). There are a number of glass tiles with different etchings on them like 'weather', 'timemachine', and 'map'. The user takes the tiles and places them on the tile spots on top of the LCD. Under the times the LCD lights with as the 'widget' or application associated with the timer. You can also chain the tiles togather for example by placing a 'timemachine' next to a 'weather' you can scan back and forth through time data for the weather. Add a camera tile to the mix and it scans back and forth through the camera video based on the time in the time tile. It seems like digital lego displays which would allow people to chain tiles togather to create applications without knowing anything about programming. Cool stuff.
