Microsoft Surface: touch sensitive table


Touch screens are all the rage, as seen with the upcoming iPhone from Apple. Not to be undone, today, Microsoft has just introduced a touch screen table that they are calling "Microsoft Surface." A key feature is that it has multi-touch, so that many users can interact with the screen at the same time. Initial customers are Harrah's Entertainment, Starwood Hotel and Resorts and T-Mobile. It is reminscient of the work of Jeff Han from New York Universty that was seen all over youtube.

Check out the demo videos on the Seattle PI website for examples like digital menu ordering, photo editing, and painting.
