Microsoft Surface

Microsoft Surface is a new computer in a tabletop that you interact with using your fingers. It has cameras that sense what you put on top of it such as cameras, phones, etc and lets you interact with them appropriately. Think Minority Report meets Ikea.  You need to see the videos. This looks sweet!

the problem with surface is, when are you ever going to be in a circumstance  where are you ever going to find 2 people with zunes in the same room

Actually, this technology’s been around for a couple of years.  I remember seeing a video of it in 2005 or so.

It’s the kind of tech in use now on electronic casino poker tables, for example.

Troll Youtube for, I believe it’s called, “Reactable”.

No! No! No! It’s only a legitmate idea cuz MicroSoft’s done it!
Now you’re gonna try and tell me Ubuntu was any good before Dell started installing it!
