Isn't that neat? Man, I can't wait for this technology to mature. Imagine this kind of stuff on our monitors someday. It's like virtual reality. This stuff will revolutionize how we interact with computers. At the same time, can you imagine how many fingerprints will be on the surface?

It's supposed to be more for business applications at first more than anything. Especially since one costs $10,000.

This is my opinion on the Microsoft Surface: It is a big ass table.

It's change too quickly for me. I'd rather go slower. You just know some rich-ass punk down the street will get one and show it off you you someday... sigh.

This technology is not limited to just flat table surfaces, but can also be used on walls or any flat panel---including flat screen monitors too. It's based to similar technology as the touchscreens we have now for the tablet PCs.

I just want to see how thin we can get this thing. Perhaps try to embed everything into something as thin as glass. That will be something. Oh wait, the video shows that already, lol. Great stuff. Can't wait to get it in the future. You all know we're headed that route. 5-10 years from now, we could probably see that on home computing.

Comparing it to Minority Report is actually somewhat inaccurate.

Anyone remember The Island? Ewan MacGregor and Scarlett Johanssen?

The part where he goes into the doctor or supervisor's office and he uses this pyramid shaped thing to manipulate things on the table. Well that was one of the prototypes of the Microsoft Surface. It was requested to be used in that movie.
