The live report said the iPhone 5 has a "laser keyboard" and "holographic images"

A news outlet in New York made a huge goof in its recent iPhone 5 coverage, saying that the new Apple device has new features like a laser keyboard.

Fox 5 New York (WNYW), a local television station in NYC, recently ran a live report ahead of the iPhone 5 release in front of a 5th Avenue Apple store. The broadcast aimed to interview hardcore Apple fans sleeping outside of the store until the iPhone 5's release this Friday.

However, the live broadcast went seriously wrong when the reporter described the iPhone 5's features. Instead of talking about the iPhone's new screen size or 4G LTE capabilities, the reporter described a "laser keyboard" and "holographic images." What?

Clearly, the iPhone 5 doesn't have these features. So why did Fox 5 New York report it? Apparently, whoever did the fact-checking for Fox 5 that day grabbed a concept video from Aatma Studio, which discussed what the iPhone could hypothetically do. To make matters worse, the concept video is a year old already.
