Microsoft Surface – A Multi-Touchscreen Table

So Microsoft just unveiled “Surface“. It’s a table with a flat screen that’s sensitive to multiple pointers (fingers). It’s pretty much what we’ve Apple does wants to do with the iPhone, except larger.

This seems to spell the arrival of multi-touch interfaces and I think it’s great. How long untill I’ve got this on my work-table as an addition to my mouse? Not soon enough, I’m sure.

  1. I don’t see anything new in this although I have great hopes for its applicable use. Maybe this could revive the tablet-PC.

    On you work-table… this will eventually BE your worktable πŸ™‚

    Hmm, good point. But can I do all the things I need to do on this? Sure one could probably develop a special pressure sensitive pen to go with the table, but what about a keyboard? Should we invent a new interface for inputting letters and symbols?
