I remember many years back, the people who originally created what we now know as Microsoft Pixelsense (which was previously called Microsoft Surface before the tablet took over the name) was developed by some really small obscure company that no one had even heard of. Then soon after it was shown on this technology show, Microsoft bought out the company and... yeah.

So the scenario of a big company buying them out is pretty plausable and they're either just silently developing it or sitting on the patents.
