Not even scratching the Surface

Ok, I must admit I’m impressed by Microsoft’s new table-like project called Surface, which Bill G has been showing off lately. It’s a multitouch capable computer that works in a table form factor. There are some obvious uses of it, like restaurants, casinos, etc where transactions take place largely on a table. I don’t know how commercially successful it will be but I think it’s a pretty cool technology!

Watch the video and check it out for yourself…  I particularly like the way it interacts with devices like digital cameras and PDAs.  I presume those devices would have to have some form of wireless interconnectivity such as Bluetooth or Wifi?  Very cool though!

That's all well and good, but what do YOU think?
