Weekend Fun: Microsoft Surface research
Due to the hype coming from the media in the last couple of weeks, we decided to further research about the Microsoft Surface. The unit was first announced in May 2007 and the first unit was sold in Australia this month. Apparently the unit costs $20,000 (ouch).
The Microsoft Surface is a table-like display that is multi-touch. Basically responds to touch, natural hand gestures and placement of real-world objects which includes digital cameras, mobile phones and even business cards (I’m not sure how it would work with the business card).
Here’s a video of how it can be used:
Have you tested the Microsoft Surface? We would love to hear what you think about the unit. If you have one of these unit in Australia, we’ll love to have a look at it.
