Microsoft Surface

Posted: May 31, 2007 by jgrantmarshall in Uncategorized

You might remember seeing something similar to this in a previous video I posted, but here it is: Microsoft Surface.  If you’re asking yourself, “What in the world is he talking about?”, …don’t worry, I get that a lot… but what Surface is/will be is an altogether new User Interface.  Keyboard and mouse are gone and you will interact with your computer environment using your fingers and gestures… hmm, fingers and gestures probably should not be used in conjunction to describe something… but again I digress.  As is shown in the clip/commercial below, you can place real world devices (phones, cameras, credit cards) on the surface/desktop and it will be recognized.  To move data to/from the device you would just point to it with your finger and drag it to your device… synced!  I would love to have this on a laptop/tablet PC.

Below is a longer and geekier, but more in depth, demonstration of Surface.
