Microsoft Surface

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.

As the cost is prohibitive for most home use, Sheraton Hotels, Harrah’s, and T-Mobile stores are partners in this endeavor and will use Microsoft Surface in their public areas.
