Hopefully this will mean that it will one day be possible to swap a laptop LCD with another one from a completely different manufacturer.
Right now every laptop manufacturer seems to use different electrical configurations, connectors and EDID.
Imagine a computer with hardware that literally reforms its self to accomplish new tasks on the fly.
Reconfigurable computing is already possible with FPGAs.
You can't go and buy commodity x86-type hardware such as CPUs or GPUs just yet, but "soon" (sooner than practical nuclear fusion, later than DNF) it will happen.
