A different way of interacting with your data and with others. Microsoft has been working on surface technology for a number of years. In May, they came out with their first product — Microsoft Surface. It is a highly sensitive touch technology mounted in a table. Some of the applications they demonstrate include the ability of a group of people to look at, move, and manipulate a number of digital photos, download digital images directly from a digital camera onto the table surface, email photos/documents to others, choose from a restaurant menu, as well as split the bill and pay for the meal. Although I did not see demonstrations of gaming, I’ve read that those, too, are included in this first generation.
